DYSU #49 - Something Old

So glad you could join us once again for a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?! This week we want to see Something Old! It could truly be something old, or just a vintage style or image.

This week's Sponsors:

Saturated Canary Digis
Winner’s Choice of 2 Digis

Gecko Galz
Prize Package: Pack of paper of the winners choice, 4 collage sets of the winners choice, a stamp set of the winners choice, and vintage pearl button pack, vintage lace, and Gecko Galz fibers

Here is what I came up with this week:

I got the pleasure of working with Gecko Galz Ephemera Packs (you can either buy the digital files and print them yourself or buy them pre-printed) this week and I chose to use "All the Trimmings" but, I'm looking forward to using their GORGEOUS vintage images again soon....In fact, I think I may try to make a bunch more similar to this as I STILL am not done my Christmas cards, LOL, and an added bonus to using these images (aside from their beauty) is that they don't need to be coloured which makes for a quick card, YAY!  I'm VERY pleased with the results aside from the fact that I stamped the sentiment crooked...YIKES!  I think I'll be investing in a Stamp-a-ma-jig VERY soon, LOL!  
Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention....for something old, I used a button that my mom has had kicking around for 20+ years...I was hoping she'd go raid my grandma's stash for me but, that hasn't happened yet...I don't know what kind of goodies she has stored away but, I bet there are some real gems! 

I am using this card for the DT Call over at Pumpkin Spice.  I don't know if you have shopped with them before but, when I found them, I was over-joyed because they carry pretty much ALL of the BEST paper lines and EVERYTHING is 30% off retail!  They also carry some other paper-crafting supplies and accessories...To sweeten the deal even more, they offer free shipping within the US on orders of $50+....if you haven't already, I urge to you check out the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store!

For a detailed Supply List, please see below.

Well, that's it gals...I hope you'll join us, this week, at DYSU and make a project either using something old OR using a Vintage style...Can't wait to see what you create!
