Something New, Old, Borrowed, and Blue - Timeless Tuesday 231

Hi all!
There is no place like home and that is where I am again! I am back from my nearly 3 week road trip with my boys and had a wonderful time seeing family and friends.  I have never done a road trip this long, so it was an experience for all of us.  In total, I had driven 40 hours!!  I think I will stick to airplanes... : )

Welcome back to another Timeless Tuesday challenge and this weeks hostess is the wonderful Allison! She is challenging you to Something New, Old, Borrowed, and Blue!! Although this sounds like a wedding theme, it doesn't have to be.  Just follow the recipe:

OLD - something older from your product stash
NEW - 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!

Here is the breakdown for my card using the recipe. 

NEW - Garden Fairies  A fabulous new release!
OLD - DP from Pink Paislee and Prima flowers I have had in my stash forever!
BORROWED - I lifted this design in the Flourishes Gallery from Tosh.
BLUE - Yes! That has been included! :)

Additional items used: Copics for the image, Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval Die, and Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  Once the image was colored in, I cut around it to pop it up on the Victorian die which in turn is also popped up over the fishtail.  I sponged in the center of the die with some Distress Inks in Antique Linen. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the dp and the card was finished off with some Prima flowers along the bottom of the center panel. 

Come play along and link up to the Timeless Tuesday challenge! You could win a little prize! Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations from the Timeless Tuesday Team! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
