Happy New Year!

I know! I know! I'm a few days late, but I don't usually make New Year's cards. I have made this one especially for a few challenges. And they are...Dare To Be Sassy Thursday's Challenge #262 To Ring In The New Year, Sassy Studio's Facebook January Progressive Challenge to use the New Year Disco Ball digi, Aud Sentiments Challenge #122 to use the word new and for the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge to use the sketch below.

And here's the sketch...

And here's my take on it...I added stars instead of flowers as I didn't think flowers would work on this card! I'm still having issues with my skin colours despite cleaning them. I'm going to try cleaning them again this week, but the problem one is my E21 which had a new nib put in last week as well, so no idea how it can be that bad already! I haven't done THAT much colouring, have I?! LOL

  4. Beautiful card, stunning. I love everything about this card. The dies, colors, image, EVERYTHING. I am so glad you joined us at Aud Sentiments for our NEW challenge.

  5. Fab card. Love the design and color combo. I am in process of cleaning my markers too. My E21 was giving me fits after cleaning and changing nib so I bought a new one.
