By the Cute & Girly New Beginnings

 Good morning. I really meant to post this yesterday but with one thing and another time ran away and I didn't get round to it - sorry :o(

I was mega thrilled to be picked to be Guest DT for
By the Cute and Girly 
this month
and the very apt theme for the new challenge is
so today I would like to share my first of two projects for the challenge this month and I will share the second one mid-month - watch this space :o)
 I love this Digistamp Boutique image and thought it would be perfect for a
'Cute & Girly' Happy New Year card - it reminds me of my cousin and I and our party days lol!!!
I coloured the image with Flexmarkers and PM's and added a touch of Glamour Dust to the champagne and bubbles.
Design Papers - Freebie from craft magazine
Wooden flower embellishment - blinged up with Stamp and Bond and then Glamour Dusted.
Ribbon from NEC stash
Adhesive pearls from NEC stash

Hope you all had fabulous New Year celebrations - we baby sat for Oliver and had a very quiet and peaceful night - not at all like the party daysof me and my cousin lol!!!!

NGCARDS said...

This is such a cute card hun!

Also apologies for not saying thank you sooner but thank you for the lovely christmas card! It took me a little while to figure out it was you who sent it and by the time I realised it was too late to send a card in return. So I do hope you don't think I was being ungrateful or ignorant because I wasn't lol

Hope you had a great christmas and new year! xxx
