DCM dare/Just Bex Challenge

This is the brief from the DCM web site

This week we have a recipe challenge for the Little Extra. There's an old rhyme that tells brides what they should wear on their wedding day to be sure of good luck, it goes:
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue.This week we'd like you to incorporate these four things into your card -
It doesn't have to be a Wedding card, despite the verse - just as long as your card features each of those things on it.
Borrowed could be borrowed from another card, some ribbon from a chocolate box, a tiny piece "borrowed" from a child's hair ribbon, even a postage stamp from an old envelope, it could also be an item or technique borrowed from a different crafty sphere...And before you ask - whilst you're allowed to use a sewing machine to make your card - it CAN'T be your borrowed item - as that would be just TOO EASY and this is supposed to be a challenge, isn't it! hehehe
Here is my card

So my something old is the vintage image from Joanna Sheen's Romance cd, my new are the mat stacks by K & Co, my borrowed is the template from JB challenge and the blue is the colour which pulls it altogether.

The brief from Just Bex is

We want you to use this template and complete BOTH our tasks.

Here's your template and we need a LAYOUT - minimum size 8 x 8 and a CARD BUT you must remember the template rules - there are NONE twist it, flip it shrink it YOU DECIDE

Finally managed the layout too :)
