Something New and Something Old

Here is another sweet image by Krista Smith at Saturated Canary. She has the cutest images. She also designs the Simply Sassy stamps for Sugar Nellies. I called this post Something New and Something Old.

My something old would be my DP, pearls and the flowers. They have been in my stash for a long time.

Paper - CS is Brazzill and DP is Beach Babe by Fancy Pants Design.
Flowers - Prima
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Oval and Scalloped Oval
Ribbon - Stampin Up
