My Grafico - First time play along!



To support my Stampin’ buddie Nancy, I decided to have a play this week at My Grafico.
The theme this week is Out with the OLD and in with the NEW!
Meaning we have to be cleaver and incorporate something new with a re-purposed item, be it wrapping paper, something from a card you've received or old calendars.
Here is my card!


I have used some new papers I received in a Secret Santa ~ Basic Grey - Lemonade *which are gorgeous! Thank you* 
Then I printed out one of the Digi Stamps from the My Grafico Love Grows Here set onto some Pink Paper, then I printed the little cute bird onto plain white and hinted with a little shading in Pink in Copics.

My re-purposed items are the wire and the little Dove charm. The wire I pulled off a really old card I received a while back, and the little Dove was from a bracelet which snapped early last year which I saved in my stash box along with the other charms from the same bracelet (was a cheapie so no loss).

If you have a spare few minutes you can pop across to My Grafico and play along in their blog hop as they have announced the new teams for this half of the year. Also - there are great prizes up for grabs - a second chance to win is to take part in the challenge!
Good Luck and Thank You for popping by!
