DCM-Golden Oldies

Well, as promsed I'm trying to be a better Blogger so I'm here again, this time with the DCM dare;NOW ! - on to this weeks dare - we have a team dare this week, and we were thinking.....with so many new things /latest papers/ trendy stuff constantly coming on the market, we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper.

For my card I've use one of my old BG papers that I haven't used in AAAAAGES! The real antique in this card is the ribbon which I worked out to be 25 years old! I've added some Prima Quick Picks which have been neglected for some time too.


The image is Angel Dottie from the Christmas download collection.

It isn't one of my best cards because I was rushing - I want to get out into the sunshine!
