The East Wind Challenge #56 Something Old, Something New

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The East Wind. This fortnight our challenge is to use dots and stripes on your project. And as it is the 1st of the month, it is also time for our monthly freebie digi image with The East Wind newsletter. If you haven't signed up for it, head over to the blog and find out how to do so!

This month's image is called Sassy Summer Fashion and I just love the attitude on her face. It's definitely an "I'm cool!" attitude. I just had to do her in hot pink and black though, as I love this bright combo together!

My something old is all the patterned papers which are from Stampin' Up and have been retired for a long time now; my somethings new are my image and sentiment stamps as well as all the dies, which technically are not new as I bought them ages ago, but I only found them down the side of my Ikea unit the other day. The bag they were in must have fallen down there donkeys years ago, but I had never used the set! (I also found some patterned papers, ribbon, double sided tape, buttons and some random pieces of card in the same bag!)
