gettin' punchy

this week at shopping our stash we want to see projects which feature your oldest punch or die! because if you're anything like me, you sometimes get so obsessed with whatever your newest acquisition is, that you let your older tools languish a bit. which is a pity, right? so let's grab those veteran punches and dies and make something awesome! for my card i decided to use my very first border punch; only trouble is... i'm not quiiiiiite sure whether that was fiskars' "threading water" or recollections' big scalloppy one.. so i used BOTH! see?

(collage background made of many book paper and foreign text scraps with a few doily bits and a little bit of sheet music; flower cut from a magazine; patterned paper: love elsie, basic grey; vellum doily: maggie holmes/crate paper; white glossy cardstock; paper accents; border punches: fiskars, recollections; scrap of lace from my stash; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, scotch gluestick, sewing machine)

and now may i suggest a stop over at SOS to see the rest of the amazing projects made especially to inspire ♥YOU♥ to join us?! you can thank me later. :)

And even though teachers may TEACH phonetics, I didn't learn that way, so wen = when. k? ;/

Very pretty! You're so right about forgetting to use the old stuff. I bet we're all guilty of that.

Regardless of which punch is older, they both still work beautifully and enhanced this gorgeous card! The rose is fantastic with all the lace, musical background and border work! Thanks too for your sweet comment on my SOS entry! I love my old punches and still enjoy using them :)
