'Happy New Year' and New Beginnings.....

Good morning.....Happy New year everyone........Hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas, just can't believe that's it all over for another year! Where does the time go!!!

Well here we are with a New year and a new challenge at Creata Challenge Blog, this weeks theme is very namely apt......'New Beginnings' !!!

For my sample I have taken the theme of New Home. Creata products I have used are birdhouse stamp, 12x12 cardboard backing paper, mirror board, backing paper card, various Joycraft dies, peel offs and kraft card as my base card. I coloured in stamped image with Promarkers sandstone, tan, baby pink, pear green and antique pink. I die cut out 12x12 cardboard paper using Spellbinders labels eight and mounted on to more cardboard paper, this was topped on to mirror board. I cut out flowers and flourishes from backing paper card using Joy craft dies, the birds were cut from backing paper card using the Lin and Lene die. I finished off using ribbon, brads and gem from my own stash.
