Sketch Challenge with a Twist- GD post for Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge

Welcome to the  Challenge #6

For Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog!

Use the sketch below as inspiration for creating your project. You can modify the sketch to create a card, scrapbook layout, altered canvas, mini book cover, and so on. Now, for the TWIST! You must search your hoard and find one item that is OLD and one item that is NEW and use them BOTH on your project. Show us how you combine older items from your stash with something recently purchased.

Please note: you may change the elements of the sketch design. The flowers can become gears, stars, or a bow. The banners can become buttons or a folded edge. Please feel to rotate or flip the sketch. The sketch is just a guide to your creativity.

One talented participant will receive this prize, donated by Hampton Art!

Here is what I created for the sketch challenge..

  The new in my card is the stamp from Justrite stamps- Butterfly vines Background and the old are the flowers from my stash which I have been hoarding since long!!

For this card, I used the various background stamps .The tone on tone look is my favourite and I tried this for all the three panels. I love how the white flowers go with the colours!
