Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

A Great BIG Thank You to all you fabby cardmakers who've shown your star quality and joined in with Keryn's Celestial challenge - remember there's still a few days left for you to have your astronomical and astrological cards added to our star billing links list.

This week we have a recipe challenge for the Little Extra. There's an old rhyme that tells brides what they should wear on their wedding day to be sure of good luck, it goes:
Something Old
Something New
Something Borrowed
and Something Blue

This week we'd like you to incorporate these four things into your card -
It doesn't have to be a Wedding card, despite the verse - just as long as your card features each of those things on it.
Borrowed could be borrowed from another card, some ribbon from a chocolate box, a tiny piece "borrowed" from a child's hair ribbon, even a postage stamp from an old envelope, it could also be an item or technique borrowed from a different crafty sphere...
And before you ask - whilst you're allowed to use a sewing machine to make your card - it CAN'T be your borrowed item - as that would be just TOO EASY and this is supposed to be a challenge, isn't it! hehehe
Here are some ideas from the Design team, but we'd love to see how you get on with this recipe, so don't forget to leave us a message so we can come and visit.
