Back to Work with the Oldies

 Good morning. Today I would like to share my DT card for our first challenge of 2012 at


But first I need to let you know about some exciting changes that hopefully will make it soooooo much easier for you all to join in the fun with us each fortnight.
From this challenge onwards all you need to do is use anything from your stash that is at least 6 months old. So it could be Design Papers, Flowers, A Die - anything at all as long as you have had for it at least 6 months. You can also use a rubber, clear, cling or DIGI stamp now too that is at least 6 months old.
So how much easier is that :o)

This fortnight the lovely Janice has picked the theme:

(this could be any type of card with a person at work on it)
Our sponsor this fortnight is

and they are offering 1 lucky winner 7 digi images of their choice.
The DT were lucky enough to have some images to work with.I chose this fabby Stella image available here.
There will be a number of peeps returning back to work this week following the Christmas and New Year break that won't be too pleased but will no doubt be offering happy New Year wishes to their work colleagues - so my card is a Happy New Year card for just such an occassion :o)

And here's what I did:
I created the background using some cor'dinations cardstock and Creative Expressions Flower Mask that I ran through the Grand Calibur to embossed and then I sanded it back. I also pierced round the edges using my new Tim Holtz Design Ruler - it's fab :o)

The strip of Design Paper is Echo Park - Walk in the Park - a digi download available here
Image coloured with PM's
I added Glossy Accents to the PC screen and the wheels of the chair.
Flowers from stash - blinged up with some adhesive gems.
Leaves - Memory Box die.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see the fabulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies - you won't be disappointed :o)
