Shopping Our Stash #92

Good morning, friends!  It's Tuesday and that means another challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  This week we want to see you use a border punch.  More specifically your oldest border punch!  Pull it out, blow off the dust and put it to work!

 Here's what I came up with.  I used an image from Janet at bydigitalpaper on etsy and you can find it here.  Her designs are beautiful and I love using them.  My border punch is an old Fiskars one I haven't used in quite a while but I think it fit the sketch form CLP pretty well.  The papers are all MME.  The lace is a small scrap from my scrap jar.  The digital images has little images on the sheet as well so I used them to make my banner.  The pink and green brads are at least 3 years old.  I figure it's time to stop saving the pretty things and use them up so others can enjoy them too.  The bows are made from vintage seam binding.
 The inside shows off the great papers and I used the same sketch for the writing panel.

I am entering my card in the following challenge:

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
