At Practical Scrappers the challenge is to use something that is more than a year old.  No problem there, I had this purple ribbon since my oldest son got married six years ago.  I've had the Mary Engelbreit stickers for two years or more.  I just kept looking at them and wondering what to do with them so they sat in the drawer.  I've had the stamps and the rhinestones a long time too.  The doily package I've had for years, but I just opened it.

So even though all the stuff is old, I needed to put them on something new to me (my stipulation).  I looked for a new fold and found a card someone had done for a baby that was three tags joined together.  I used that model for my own design of pocketed tags.

My DH leaves comments on my cards at night while I am sleeping.  He is currently in Kuwait. 
He hated the purple ribbons at the top and said it was like trying to look through a forest.  When I got up this morning, I decided he was right and replaced the ribbons with buttons and I like it SO much better.  Hurray for dear husbands!
