DT Simply Magnolia with Something old and something new

Hope you all have a great start of a new week.
Me ? I am sitting here caught with lumbago (back pain) and have big trouble to move around.
Hopefully it will pass away soon.
Meanwhile I am sitting here coloring some Magnolias or surfing the web.

It is already middle of the month, and that means we are midway in our challenge over at the
SIMPLY MAGNOLIA
and the theme this time is Something old/Something new.
It's a great one I think :)
You still have 2 weeks to join us in the fun.

For my card I have used two old stamp of Edwin and Dragon that I acctualy colored this last summer and that time colored the dragon with two tones wich was new to me at the time.
And the new was that I had to buy some designpaper I liked along with the pirat charm now after new year.
Kept it kind of simple fit for a young boy






For this card I have used:
Stamps from Magnolia - Pirat Edwin with Barrel, skull & anchor from fairy tale collection 2010 and Lilyrose the dragon from the Princes & Princesses collection 2012
Colored with copics - not sure what colors I have used here
Designpaper from Maja design
Dies from Spellbinders and La-la land +
Charm, sea shell and ribbon from my stach

Happy New Year

It is the last day of this year, and I have to just say it has been an interesting year with a lot happening.
