Allsorts Challenge = New Beginnings

Hello Everyone,

Well this will be the last post of this year, I hope that everyone has enjoyed a fabulous Christmas and have lots of plans for bringing the New Year in and have made lots of New Years Resolutions.  Leave me a comment to let me know what yours are!  Todays card is my take on the Allsorts Challenge New Beginnings - how lovely to make anything but Christmas cards!   As you will see I have chosen a wedding theme and didnt have any problem with the stamp that I wanted to use as I love the Daisy and Don series that Marianne Designs brought out a couple of months ago.  They are a real cute image with lots of opportunity to colour in your image however you prefer. I used pro-markers I have also used several of the Marianne Dies including the newest Craftables which is the very pretty rectangle die which Don and Daisy have been stamped onto. The backing papers are from the Melissa Francis range, which I am still loving, and weathered wood and victorian velvet distress ink complements the whole design.
                       Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog and have a go - make taking part in our weekly challenge your New Years Resolution there are some fabulous prizes and it is great fun!  I hope that you like my take on it.  It just leaves me to wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy 2012 take time to look back at 2011 and all the fabulous things that have happened to you this year and think about what you would love to achieve in the next year.  Thank you to you all for following my blog and leaving such lovely comments over the last few months it has been so much appreciated.  Bye for now Jo x
