DCM little extra - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

for this weeks little extra at
Daring Cardmakers,
kathy came up with a beaut dare it's one of her recipe's...
There's an old rhyme that tells brides what they should wear on their wedding day to be sure of good luck, it goes:
Something Old,Something New,Something Borrowed,
and Something Blue
This week we'd like you to incorporate these four things into your card -
It doesn't have to be a Wedding card, despite the verse - just as long as your card features each of those things on it.
Borrowed could be borrowed from another card, some ribbon from a chocolate box, a tiny piece "borrowed" from a child's hair ribbon, even a postage stamp from an old envelope, it could also be an item or technique borrowed from a different crafty sphere...And before you ask - whilst you're allowed to use a sewing machine to make your card - it CAN'T be your borrowed item - as that would be just TOO EASY and this is supposed to be a challenge, isn't it! hehehe
Well Here is my card, I decided that seeings I have a bit of a 'rusty old junk' collection, I'd use some of my bits....
Something Old - well I've got a few on here- vintage button, buckle, token
Something New - the paper I used is Scrumptious 'Scenic Route' paper
Something Borrowed - that would be the little hinge
Something Blue - well that would be the Junkitz blue denim button
other bits I used are some scrummy letters a friend sent me, Basic Grey PP, clock stamp from my 'it's a mans world' stamp set from Artistree,7 Gypsies arrow, Karen Foster Biggie brad, screw type brad, & my sewing machine...
So have you Dared to DARE yet?... Come on I dare you!!!!

Great card and such a funny idea to use the weddingspecials for the bride on a card!

I particularly like the denim buttons! I am a bit of a denim fan especially on things other than jeans!

Ah- and I have just spotted the word 'unique!' how cool is that!

I love the patchwork feel of this card - I now realise the sewing machine is a vital part of you card making equipment. I'm envious of all your embellishments, and how well you use them.
Thanks for the grunge definition and comments.
