Happy new year 2013!!!

Happy new year!!!

Wow, a brand new year, a new beginning and a new chapter to start. Lots of possibilities!
New promises, this year I will not buy so many dies or copics or stamps:) I will reinvent uses for what I already have, I will be creative with little - well, after last years shopping together it may not be so little anymore:)

I will only buy what I need...!
...But I need so much:)

Anyway, I start 2013 with bringing you this Tilda dancing in the new year!

The card is 4x4 in size and I made the background myself by stamping on white cardstock and distressing it with vintage photo to blend with the rest. Dancing queen Tilda is coloured with copic pens, but her dress is paper pieced with Prima Almanac. Her shoes are glittered with ultrafine art glitter in pink champagne and she has ivory flat backs in her hair.

To embellish the card I hot glued some Melissa Frances box pleated trim in cream and 2rows of brown bling mesh. I stamped a calender on white cardstock in adirondack hazelnut and distressed it in vintage photo. I put a foam dot from Jodi on the back and stuck it to a small die cut of MFT's decorative doily duo. The die cut is sprayed with Lindy's stamp gang dark chocolate truffle and very shimmery. I also used LGS on the flowers and leaves in dark chocolate truffle and a bit o'bubbly.

The cherry on top is the mixed sizes of flat backs where the stamp left bubbles.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:
CMC Copic challenge group - Metallic gleam
Dies to die for - die-ing for challenge
Simon says stamp challenge blog - anything goes
Simon says stamp vintage blog - no rules

Thanks for visiting,


  1. Absolutely darling card! Love the brown tones! Love the Tilda...so carefree and adorable. You've done such a wonderful job of coloring her! Love her sparkly shoes! The circle calendar and the die cut underneath is really pretty with the flowers. I also really like the sparkly band that runs across the card. Very nice design! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
