Happy New Year

The lovely Leigh from Happi Scrappin' Doodles gave away a freebie on CDAC which is a great New Year image.

Having started my Christmas Cards late this year I only had enough time to make family cards and those for Paul's work colleagues so a lot of people missed out on cards so I thought I could send some New Year cards instead.

I had printed out a number of digi images a few nights ago and was colouring them with my Promarkers on Christmas Day whilst Paul was playing with his new steering wheel on the PS3. It was pretty much as perfect as could be :)

The backing paper is a magazine freebie by Funky Hand which has been torn and folded back a bit, and also distressed on the edges. I used a little serrated clay tool and it really roughs it up. I have to admit though it kinda hurts to tear pretty paper. I don't think distressing paper is me, I loves my pretty papers too much....

The image has been coloured with Promarkers, sakura glitter pen and some stickles bubbles and was cut out using a Nellie Snellen die. I have inked the edge and mounted it on 3d foam pads.

The swirl is a self adhesive one from Doodlebug which has got lots of silver glitter on it (yes, there is glitter EVERYWHERE, but that's what makes it fun LOL)

I have added gems in the corners and the sentiment is a peel off sticker.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
This will probably be the last card of the year for me as I am going visiting friends over the next couple of days so I would like like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year.
