Happy New Year to you all

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous new year, thank you to all those who have visited my little corner of blogland over the year even though I haven't posted as much as I would have liked. I plan to change that in 2014. 

 This is my latest creation, she is one of the Snow babies from Elisabeth Bell. I used my new Spectrum Noir pens to colour her and am quite pleased with the results.
 I cut the image out with Labels 4 from Spellbinders and as the next size up was too big for the card I just drew round the die for a little border on the image.
I used some silver paper and my Martha Stewart lace doily punch to create some paper lace, I added some seam binding I coloured with my pens, a few punched snowflakes and pearls for the middle of them. The backing paper and sentiment is from the Crafters Companion Inspiration magazine cd. I can see these being used fairly often. I added some sparkle with some glamour dust round the edges.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Loves Rubber Stamps- New Years resolution -mine is to make my Christmas Card all year round in 2014
Winter Wonderland- Fashion -I'm hoping her outfit will be enough for this one
Crafts and Me- Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly- Any Challenge- Anything Goes
Digi Sketch Challenge- Sketch I have used the sketch and the theme of ribbons and pearls
Divas By Design- Anything Goes
Songbird Challenges- Christmas
A gem of a Challenge- Anything Goes
Elisabeth Bell's World- Snow and lace

As always thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to take the time t leave are greatly appreciated.
