Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2013! I hope this year is a good one for you and for the rest of the world.
As its Tuesday that can mean only one thing - the Color Challenge at the Outlawz!

This weeks inspirational picture and colour palette was chosen by Roxann:

Roxann chose the colours, light turquiose, blue grey and melon with a twist of add twine. What a wonderful change from the colours we have been using recently - a real breath of fresh air!

For my card I chose an image from D'Arcys Diaries

isn't she cute? I coloured her with Promarkers and used some papers from Nit Wits Collections for my background (now I've got a decent printer again, Yay!). I puched the corner with a Martha Stewart punch and threaded my twine through the loop to add my sentiment which I anchored with a pretty flower shaped button. I used Spellbinders corners, some grossgrain ribbon and some bling.

Hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting, I love that you have taken the time and appreciate your comments!
See you again soon!
