Wishing You A Happy New Year

Hoping everyone has had a fantastic Christmas so far? :)  Mine was wonderful!  I got a new 1TB hard-drive, An Idiot Abroad on DVD (Im in love with Karl Pilkington - lol ), some scalloped circular nesties and a big Toblerone!  We dont do Christmas on a massive scale, I think its important to love people all year round, but white christmasses always feel special and it was a lot of fun.  :) 

Anyway, I made this very pink and girly card today using Starlight Tilda, my new scalloped nesties, LOTV sentiment stamp, MME free paper stack and Marianne D dies.  I also used MS punches, stickles and pearls.  Charm and brads from stash. 

As there are still a lot of Anything Goes and extended challenges at this time of year, I am entering this card in the below challenges:

Wild Orchid Challenge - Pink, White and Silver
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes - Tilda is coloured with Pro-markers
Magnolia-liscious Highlights - Word play - make a word and use a magnolia stamp.
Crafters Companion - Great sketch, I enjoyed following this.
7Kids Challenge - Anything Goes
Die Cut Dreams - How girly can you get?
Paper Sundaes - Challenge 49 - cut it out.  I cut my magnolia image out.
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Get embellishing - I made all the embellishments myself - die cuts & punches, for flourishes, flowers, leaves and word.
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Anything Goes - NOT Christmas
Cooking it up with Katie - Ribbon and brads
Crafty Catz - Pick a challenge - I chose challenge 51 - Stitching.  I normally hand-stitch on my cards, but this is the first time I have tried faux stitching.
Ooh La La Creations - Toast to 2011
Paper Playtime - New Year
C.R.A.F.T. Challenges - New year, new beginnings.  This is my card to wish everyone a Happy New Year

Thanks so much for looking, and I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Delightful flowers & I like that star on her wand. Those nesties are impressive - will have to put those on my list as well as the LOTV sentiments. The silver & white with pink is lovely & feminine too.
