Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

Wow, it's the last July challenge already at Flourishes.  It's hard to believe that this is my last card as the July guest designer.  Never fear, I will be back to enter the challenges now.  If you don't have any of their stamps, I strongly suggest you think about investing in some of them.  They stick to the acrylic block like glue.  There is no worry about the stamp sliding or falling off.  They also stamp perfectly the first time.  No need to stamp several times to get the stamp ready to use.

That said, the challenge for this week is "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue".  Kind of reminds you of a wedding.  Keep in mind you do NOT have to make a wedding card.  Here are the guidelines:

OLD - use something older from your product stash
NEW - use the newest stamp that your just acquired

BORROWED - scraplift a "design" from our Flourishes Gallery (please link the project inspiration piece from our gallery)
BLUE - add something blue on it!

Old - the Martha Steward Punch, ribbon
New - The Dahlia stamp from Flourishes
Borrowed - this card from the gallery

Blue - paper, ribbon
