DCM ~ Golden Oldies...

The challenge this morning from Daring Card Makers is:

"...we thought it would be nice to have a look back, and dig out some of our 'old' papers and embellishments and make a card with our 'preloved' treasures. I think the tendency these days is to get on the 'latest must have' band wagon, sometimes, its nice to recognise what we already have- even if it isn't the 'latest' embellishment/paper."

My card is a very quick make. I dug out some hammered cardstock that I haven't used in ages, my deckle-edge scissors, some paper rosebuds, some wire, a sequin heart and some tiny peel-off hearts (although I do still use the rosebuds and the tiny hearts from time to time, so they might be considered current stash, though I've had them for donkeys years!).

Nice to make something that only takes a few minutes for a change! ;o)


  1. Heather don't take this the wrong way but its so refreshing to see such a 'clean' card. Uncluttered, unfussy but perfect!
    Going to have a go this week as I've got far to much 'old' stuff! Hope you are well. Em.x

  2. I think your card is beautiful :) Thanks for joining in with the dare,

  8. Heather
    I know exactly what you mean when I first started making cards you were lucky if you had a punch never mind a cuttlebug!!!
    Styles have changed so much and card are so decorated sometimes it's great to go back to basics and simplicity...


  9. very classy-sometimes simple is best, I think where we all use patterned paper so much its lovely to go back to basics sometimes

  10. Your card is lovely Heather.
