Something old into something new....

Whilst having my clear out in the craft room I came across a box with all sorts of images in, some just stamped and some coloured..  I did throw a lot away but some I kept to try and use up...this is one of them.
The rose is an old PSX stamp which as you can see I also shrunk down using shrink plastic and made into a tag..the  postage frame stamp is also an old one by 'Just for Fun...if I remember rightly I used a plastic template over the frame stamp dotted areas then stamped into the different areas, the script is a Hero Arts stamp...
I've used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background...the ribbon is actually a pretty green but for some reason has come out looking brownish...

great that you managed to make use of some of your 'discoveries' as you were tidying up. Lovely card and I remember that faux postage stamp template

Your card is gorgeous, Anne. I love your shrink plastic charm! I used to love those PSX stamps, I have quite a few from years ago, but they're all on heavy wood. I know it's sacrilege, but I'm thinking of taking the wood off and then they will take up a lot less room......when I eventually find them!!! - LOL! xx
