Happy New Year!



Wishing all of you blogging friends a very happy and blessed new year! I started off 2011 by making a card for 3 challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - celebrate something (I'm celebrating life)
Our Creative Corner - use blue & cream color palette, add metal & vellum, thank you theme (my sentiment isn't a direct thank you, but on the inside I plan to thank God for helping a friend through a tough time).
SFYTT - a new monthly sketch by Jen Del Muro.
The sentiment background was stamped with these gorgeous Verve butterflies in Bermuda Bay ink with the smaller of the images stamped off once. I attached the vellum - stamped in Versafine Onyx Black - over the base using metal brads. I'm off to take down some Christmas decorations...outside things will come down first while the weather is warmer then the tree will come down tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by. Don't forget I have blog candy to give away on January 12...CHECK IT OUT HERE!
STAMPS: Blue Skies (Verve)
PAPER: DeLovely Mini Pack DP by Cosmo Cricket, Vintage Cream, Vellum
ACCESSORIES: Vintage brads (SU), Prima, Lace, Floral band border stamp (MS)

This is just so pretty! I love the colors you used and that butterfly stamp makes a great background. Great work with the sentiment on vellum - it creates such a nice overlay look. So happy you are starting the new year off with Our Creative Corner. We hope to see you a lot this year.
