I have made a pact with myself...use every "old" set at least once before you buy a new one! I am sure I have a bazillion dollars worth of stamps in my cupboard..and they never see the light of day..some have never even seen ink! How sad is that!!!! The piece I picked out for the inspirational challenge http://www.etsy.com/listing/35709322...etite-ponytail worked really well with this old hostess set from 2004. It is coloured with prisma pencils and OMS with a tad of glitter for good luck! The punch used is an old Fiskars.

Sue, a beautiful and creative card. Love the rose stamped on the gingham-like bg. Your coloring with the pencils is so excellently done! Love the touch of glitter and the double punched edging....that older Fiskars punch is still a beauty. Thanks for making such a lovely sample.

How Ironic, I take a break from unmounting what to me is a shameful number of SU sets, not to mention all the odds and ends of other companies, because I have sooooo many I haven't Ever used, and the first card I see is this beautiful card of yours. The old stamps I Had to Have are the best and your card is a gorgeous testimony to that. Tfs, and keep the pact. If I ever get done unmounting I'm going to be using lots of Oldies.
