N is for New & O is for Old

Good Morning. 
It's the first Wednesday of the month which means a new challenge is starting over on the 
ABC Christmas Challenge Blog
We have two fantastic themes to choose from...or combine...this month:

'N is for New'

&
'O is for Old'

(Just don't forget the Christmas theme!)

For my card I have dug through my stamp collection and pulled out a few old favorites. 

The background of my card was stamped using a Hero Arts stamp that was embossed and I then rubbed some Distress Inks softly over it to bring out the image. 


I have coloured the LOTV image to suit the background and then added just a few flowers to finish it all off. 




I hope that you have been inspired to join us. 
 We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:
