Happy New Year ...

Hiya Folks, Hope you all had a fab weekend, I had a lovely couple of days chilling, then caught up with the sssshhhh ...HW... though now it looks as if I never did it...lol ... Anyways, I'm here this morning with my Wednesday showcase with the last image from the 'Thistle Collection' by Delightful Digi's...and here is what I created... a 'New Year' card
My Project 
Products Used 
Delightful Digi's - Thistle corner image
Heritage - Auld Lang Syne rubber stamp 
Spellbinders - Labels seventeen die
Promarkers - Lime zest, Pear green, Marsh green, Lavender, Lilac and Amethyst
Crafty Notions - Sunshine gilding flakes
Cosmic Shimmer - Frosted Lavender Twinkles
Ribbon, gems and backing paper from my stash

Using word document, I created the positions of the thistle image, as shown and printed on to paper. Coloured using Promarkers then adding gilding flakes. I printed out the purple tartan backing paper, which should look familiar, as it is my blog background!! Thought it was very apt for this and matches in well. I stamped out the 'Auld Lang Syne' then die cut it and added the glitter glue round the edge. To finish off I added the glitter ribbon and gems....
Close Ups
