Something Old, Something New

The New Year is always a good time to try and use up some of the old crafty stash to make way for the new - or should I have been using it all year round so I have space before Christmas?

I have caught the dreaded winter cold and am lacking energy to do anything more than the basics and then sitting doing some crafting.  I had some lovely goodies for Christmas including the Betsy Bluebell stamps by Penny Black and then some Promarkers.  I only had a set of 5 before Christmas but now have a lovely selection to choose from.  I have a feeling that one can never have enough shades  LOL.  I have used some old dp, ribbon and flowers to complete the card; so, 2 new things and 3 old things.  I am sure I will be doing more than this one and it will be a great way to use the crafty stash and learn how to do the shading with my new Promarkers.

I have entered this card for the following challenges:
