Oldie but a Goodie!

Just had to let you know about a new challenge blog called Oldie but a Goodie.  The idea behind it is to use your old stamps (more than 6 months old) and enter a creation into their challenge following the theme set every other Tuesday.  Now my fellow teamie at DCD Tracy is on their DT so I just had to support it now didn't I?  So I became a follower and thought I'd enter a card into their first challenge.
The theme for this first challenge is New Beginnings so I thought I'd make a Wedding Card and here it is:

I used a stamp I have had in my stash for several years - but it doesn't get out much!!  I didn't want to use too much colour so I used watercolour pencils and just used very faint colours with darker shades on the "crease lines" of the clothes. 
I added a flower corsage to the left hand side and stamped Congratulations (another stamp I've had for years!!) at the bottom.  Oh yes, I used one of the large circular die cuts that you can buy at Die Cut Dreams - what would I do without you Susie???  Now I used an ink pad to colour the larger die cut because I wanted it to be burgundy and I only had pink (hope you don't mind Susie!!)
