Happy New Year!

Hi everyone and here we are on new years eve so I'd like to wish you all a very happy new year!
I have a hopeful bird on my card today which is for the ABC Challenge of 'Underneath' which I've interpreted with my scoring being underneath the image panel!! I've stamped with black versafine and then used a blue glitter gel pen on a few of the flowers and swirls. On the card blank I scored some lines on my scoreboard for some texture, matted the image on black card, added the sentiment, a blue gem and the doodlebug blue and black check ribbon. Whatever you're doing tonight I hope you have a great time and see you in the new year!

Paper: White and black card
Stamps: Inkadinkado Birds Galore, Woodware sentiment set
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Embellishments: Blue and Black check Doodlebug Ribbon, blue Doodlebug gem, Sakura blue glitter gel pen, score board and scoring tool, dimension tape for image panel

Back soon,
