Crafty Boots Challenges - Something Old, Something New

Happy New Year! My first card for this year is for Crafty Boots Challenges. Our theme is "Something Old, Something New". This theme is a great one because there are so many ways to interpret it! I have used all "Something Old"s on my card.

This card is for a very special lady; I had a horrible month in December with my grandfather passing away, and having surgery a few days before Christmas. I have been on the hunt for a retired Stampin' Up! Stamp set that no one wants to part with for under $70 (and even that is in the US!), and this lady offered me hers, for free. We don't know each other from Adam, but I was so blown away by her generosity that I made this thank you card to send her, along with a small gift.

The products used are all Stampin' Up!

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Smokey Slate, Memento Tuxedo Black, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride
Stamps: En Francais, Lotus Blossom (the sentiment), A Rose Is A Rose

Watch this space, I will be back next week with my "Something New" card :)
