11/10 Creative Belli - old, new, borrowed, blue

Welcome to the middle of the week! 

It's time for another wonderful Creative Belli challenge!  This time our theme is to use something old, new, borrowed or blue!   Use one or all and it does not have to be a wedding card!

I'm really starting to miss getting inky so I dug out this old but wonderful stamp!!!  I adore Sugar Nellies!

Stamps: Sugar Nellie (letter box)
Papers: SU! kraft & kraft dsp, K&Co dp, vintage text
Ink: Copics
Other: ribbon scrap, old button covered in vintage text, floss

This one was a 2008 Elisabeth Bell released Sugar Nellie!  Classic!   Not sure if it's still being sold anywhere!
Sorry for the sunshine streak on this photo, please ignore it!

Check out how the rest of the Belli girls interpreted this theme...

What a sweet card! Love the image. I know what you mean about 'missing getting inky', I can't remember the last time I actually used a stamp! LOL!

I just scrolled down to see your DTC card! We did use the same paper and design. I hadn't noticed it till you wrote that on my blog!
