Week #25 - 'Old Meets New'

For this week's challenge, we'd love to see you all create a card or project with something OLD and something NEW!  Basically, the sky's the limit as long as you tell us in your blog post which items were NEW to you and which items were OLD from your stash!  Have fun with this one, folks!!
Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple guidelines will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

•Cards/projects must be newly created following the current challenge guidelines. You may enter as many times as you wish.

•Cards/projects must DIRECT LINK back to The Shabby Tea Room.

•Please do not cross-promote (advertising) events unrelated to The Shabby Tea Room Challenge.

•Please only link your submission POST - not your entire blog or multiple challenge submissions.

Please take a moment to help me welcome our Guest Designer this week - Ros Crawford! Ros has been a weekly participant in the Tea Room almost since day one and has earned many honorable mention cups of tea and Tea Time Terrific Top Three honors too!  Ros' lovely, shabby chic designing style is simply eye candy for us all to be inspired by week after week and we are so lucky to have her joining us this week!  Please stop by her blog and leave her a bit of {love}!

For me the image is new and the papers are old. The papers are from the scrap file. The image my friend went through her stamps and found it for me.
