Sugar Creek Hollow-Something Old and Something new

Hello Crafters

What a great idea for a challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. We are asked to use something old and something new on the challenge. I was so disappointed when I found my card  for the last challenge cause I had forgotten to do a post for it :( So here is mine for this time before I forget about it.

Nice and bright outside but a breezy so not too easy to take a piccie of the card-it kept blowing away.

The old thing is the card as I have a pack of these cards since I first started crafting and had only ever used one of them.
The new thing is the dress form emblie which I only got on Saturday from Crafty Emblies. I bought a bag of mixed steampunk type wooden shapes and I am delighted with them. If you like the smell of woodsmoke then just opening the packet is a brill experience as the edges of the shapes are burnt. Also got some key shapes as well so can't wait to use those. Sounds like an advert but it isn't, I am just thrilled with the shapes :)

The image is from Graphics Fairy and a free download.

My lovely friend Sandra sent me the lace-thank you Sandra, and I coloured the 'flowers' with a Promarker.

I am never quite sure if what I am doing is Vintage Shabby Chic so I hope this is ok for the challenge.
