Sketch Challenge With A Twist

Good Morning Everyone!  I hope you all had a blessed and happy Easter!  Today is the start of Challenge #6 - Sketch Challenge With A Twist at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog!!  For this challenge 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 1 item that is OLD and one item that is NEW and use both of them on your project.  Show us how you combine older itmes from your stash with something recently purchased!

Here's my DT project for this challenge.  For this layout I used the beautiful and colorful Ki "A Color Story Page Kit"paper collection from Hampton Art and I loved using the butterfly stamps from Hampton Art..just perfect for the effect I was looking for!  My OLD items were the black & pink flowers and the NEW was the beautiful butterfly stamps from Gloria!

Challenge Rules are HERE.  Make sure to link your project using the link tool on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  Make sure you visit the rest of the Design Team to check out what they have to share!
