Dig out the old!

Good Tuesday Morning and its another Sunny Day!
Our Challenge today at Top Tip Tuesday is celebrating our OLD stash.
We want you to use something that you've had for over 6 months
All you have to do is tell us what old stash you've 'dug out'
if you can remember how long you've had it
or better still both and a photo of it!

So the theme

'Dig out the Old'

Janette have a great Tip/tutorial on how to make a Envelope with Old designer papers tooo! so be sure to play along this week!

We have fabby Sponsors too!
Sew Sweet

and a new fabby sponsor
Nicecrane Designs

For my card I have Dug Out some 6 year old Quilling papers and tool, and a scrap of ribbon.
Top Tip 1: Quill and glue all of your circles before shaping them, you will then have the components all an even size.
You can see the size of the circles better than shaping as you make the piece.
Top Tip 2: I use glossy accents to glue together as it holds faster and stronger.

Not much to explain other than I have kept this card Clean and simple the sentiment is from my PC and this card was an order for a close friend who's friends son was being christened and she was to be a god mother.
