CCB06 Something Old and Something New

I am bumping this post to the top because I have included a picture of the goodies. Please be sure to post your card for this challenge to SCS using keyword CCB06 in order to be in the drawing., Anyone is welcome to play. Challenge is open until next wednesday.

Hello and happy thursday! I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Today is my turn to host a challenge for the Creatively Cute Blogger group I belong to. Anyone can play along, just post your card to SCS using CCB06 as your keyword. You have until Wednesday May 20th to post your card, I will choose a random winner. The winner will be announced on Thursday 5/21. The winner will receive a package of 36 sheets (4.5 x 6.5) designer paper by debbie mumm, package of square buttons, 3 clear studio g $1 stamp sets (fairy, mushrooms, sweet stuff), 3 ribbon flowers with pearl centers, self stick gems, 6 designer brads in antique silver (not pictured), and few prima flowers.
The challenge I chose is " Something old and something new".
Make a card using one of your older stamps or stamp sets (maybe even your very first stamp) that have been collecting dust, in combination with some of your new favorites. Or, you can use one of your new favorite images in combination with some old designer paper that has been neglected, punches you haven't used in a while, etc.
For my card I chose the retired set "Feathered Hope" by Stampin Up. It is one of the few SU sets I absolutely couldn't part with.
The image was colored with prismacolor pencils and baby oil. I cut it out with my CM oval cutting system and matted it on a oval nesties shape. Designer Paper is from a pack of blossoms and butterflies DCWV designer paper. I thought butterflies would be a perfect accent to this card, so I used my newest punch, the MS butterflies punch. Card stocks used are GP white and Pacific point. The sentiment is from SU's set Upsy daisy. I used the large oval punch to punch it out. To finish this card off, I added the white grosgrain ribbon and did some paper piercing. I used a white gel pen (SU) to add dots to the butterflies.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you will get a chance to play along.
