Use It! Challenge Number 5

This week Use It is old, neglected and thrifty!

Our challenge is to:
1/Dig out those OLD scrapbook die-cuts.
2/Scrounge around and find a piece of patterned paper that you've been hanging onto for a minimum of two years.
3/Think back to a tool or technique you used to use ALL the time and bring it back to life.
4/Incorporate something bought on clearance.

So I dug through my stash and found this old, old paper that I believe is by Basic Grey. Then I found some matching die cut tags, copper brads, a matching resin sticker and ribbon. In fact I think the paper, die cuts and sticker were on sale when I bought them many years ago! And I used to tear my paper ALL the time but have really gotten away from it. I really should tear more often!

I layered all the paper then the die cuts(some on foam) and, voila, an old, neglected and thrifty card! Hopefully it doesn't look like any of those things though.
