Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Blog Hop at Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls

Welcome to Day 1 of the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop!

Wedding bells will soon be ringing as the wedding season is almost here, and the design teams of Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls have teamed up to provide you with some beautiful wedding inspiration by creating projects using Paper Nest Dolls digital stamps! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

Red Carpet Studio is a movie-themed challenge blog that runs weekly challenges, alternating between layout and card challenges each week. All of their challenges are inspired by either a movie or aspect of Hollywood!
The Paper Nest Dolls is a brand new digital/rubber stamp shop that sells adorable stamps inspired by the designer's children. Their stamps are sold here and they just started a challenge blog as well!

For my project today, I made a 5inch square card, let me show you!
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. In the US this seems pretty standard. I got married last year, and where I live (Holland) we know the saying, but no-one does it. But me and hubby kept this tradition alive, as my dress was new, the car we used was really old (and of course got broken while driving.... :-o ), the pen we used to sign was old and borrowed, and I have some blue flowers in my bouquet.
Anyway, for this card I used all the traditions, as I used a very old piece of patterned paper, from the time I used to scrapbook, about 4 years ago.
The lace I used, as well as the rose-ribbon is new,
The stamp I used for the sentiment is borrowed from a friend,
and the blue, well, I guess that is obvious :)

Let me show you a close-up picture of my image.
I used my Copic Markers to color the image and I used the following.
Skin: E50, E51, E53
Hair: E40, E41, E43, E47, E49
Clothes: C00, C0, C2, C5, B000, B00, B02
Grass: G21, G43, G46, G99 and a green fineliner.
The cloudy background was made with a cloud template from and MFT die and Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.

The Paper Nest Dolls owner and artist, Christine, is very generously providing us with some blog candy from her online stamp shop and her brick and mortar scrapbooking store! To be eligible to win you must comment on every stop of both days of the hop.
