Old and New flowered card!

Over the years I've collected a lot of products, especially since when I like something I tend to buy extra for the future knowing that most companies quickly discontinue or retire lines. What is really nice is when old products can be matched to new products. I recently found some great 3D glittered flower stickers that reminded me of an old line of papers and coordinating stickers from around 10 years ago. Since I had the old, I had to buy the new and here's what I came up with.

The background paper is a wonderful old embossed paper in pastel colors from K&Company (I believe it dates from before K&Company merged with E.K Success. The 12" x 12" paper actually highlighted various different spring flowers with some geometric patterns intertwined and luckily I had saved the portion with the daffodils. The 3D stickers are from a new collection from Michael's Recollections. To combine the two, I started with a size A2 white card to which I added a piece of orange paper and then a piece of the embossed daffodil paper. To this I added the 3D glittered daffodil sticker. As always I cut apart the larger sticker and re-assembled it better fit the card and the background. Before doing the final adhering, I placed a gold edged sticker tag from Martha Stewart to hold text (which will be selected and added in the future).
