Happy New Year

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>

hApPy NeW yEaR everyone! I hope you had a good celebration and I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2010.

Here’s a new year card which I’m entering into the Cupcake Challenge where the theme is celebration and is back to a more Christmassy looking card after the zingy colours of yesterday. There’s lots of glittery sparkle from the gorgeous background paper which is wrapping paper I saved from one of my presents. I stamped the sweet Jam Tilda and the Magnolia calendar stamp with Memento ink and coloured with copics. I’ve done lots of faux stitching and doodling with white and silver gel pens, cut around Tilda’s legs and then mounted the image panel on dimension tape over the white satin ribbon. There’s lots of silver stickles too dotted around the image. TFL.
