Something Old, Something New

This week the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is called SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW.  We would like you to make any kind of vintage or shabby chic card that incorporates something old and something new from your craft supplies.

We are going to choose a random winner who will receive a winner's badge and a digi of our choice and the Design Team will select their Top Pick.  The creator of that card will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

I found some new paper and new images for my card and the rusty drops called cabochons on the top right corner have been in my stash for ages.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Polka Dots & Stripes
Inky Impressions - Embossing
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes

Images:  Two Clowns Poster (E-Vint), Single Clown Poster (Vintage Printables)
