Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue!

That is the theme for the current Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  It was fun to dig through my stash to see what I had that fit the challenge.  Click HERE to go right to the challenge page.

Here are the requirements for challenge:

OLD - use something older from your product stash (paper, embellishments, etc.)
NEW - the newest stamp that you just acquired.
BORROWED - scraplift (not sure what that means) or CASE (I do know what that means) a 'design'
      from the Flourishes Gallery (*PLEASE link & credit the project inspiration piece from the gallery.)
BLUE - add something blue on it. 

For the 'old,' I used the pearl and lace ribbon a friend gave me a couple of years ago.  The 'new' is my new Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 from Flourishes.  Here is the design I 'borrowed' from Cindy Lawrence.  Click on her card to go right to her design.  Click Flourishes Gallery to see more beautiful designs in the Gallery.

For the 'blue,' I used my Copic markers to color the flowers blue and used a couple of blue papers from my Down by the Shore paper from Fancy Pants.
And, here is my same but different CASE of Cindy's design.  I love that pearl and lace ribbon!

Stamp:  Botanical Bookplates Vol.1Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic Markers YG11,YG13, YG17, B00, B02, B05, YR02; Card Stock:  Classic White (Flourishes), Down By The Shore (Fancy Pants); Accessories & Tools:  Classic Bookplate Template Die (Flourishes), Pearl Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!), Pearl & Lace Ribbon, 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

Until next time. . . happy creating!
