My First Card for 2011

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a nice and relaxing Christmas and New Year break.

I told myself that I should make more cards and blog more this year. Is that my New Year resolution?! I guess it is! ^_^

So here it is - my first card for this year.

I will be entering this card in The Sugar Bowl Challenge 50 by following the below sketch and using the optional theme- embossing.

I will also be entering this card in The Play Date Cafe Challenge #63 by using grass green, gold and silver colours. At first I didn't think that these colours would work together. However, after making this card, I now quite like the colour combination. Unfortunately I don't think my photo captures the true colour of the girl's socks. (Everything else pretty much matches the colour of the card in reality but just the colour of the socks somehow came out different. It is very strange!ashamed smileys) It was meant to be two different shades of greens but they came out as blues.

Finally, I will be entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes with optional to add lace to my work.

I am very happy with my first card of the year. The colours make this card look very elegant and the sketch is simple and easy to work with. I hope you like it too!
