Nice, Bright, and Cheery on this dull snowy day

One of my New Years resolutions is to use up my stash and also try things new,

The Sketch for this card is something I have never done before,
I have never drawn my own sketch before I have always followed someone elses sketch.

The other new thing I used was my Crafters Companion CD, that I got before Christmas but had not used it yet, I have been ever so good this year so far, I have only bought one cd, no papers or other craft items yet, that is one resolution that I may break. lol.

I wanted to make a easel card, which was nice and bright and cheery on this dull snowy day.
I fell in love with this pyramage and invertage image with matching backing paper.
The ribbons I used on this card are recycled from presents and bits from Christmas as well.

I drew this sketch below, and the above photo's are the end result.

I originally started off doing this card for the Its a Crafter's Companion challenge,
then found it fitted these others as well -
Easel Card - Stampavie & More
New Items - Crafty Cardmakers
Girly Card - Cupcake Craft
New Years Resolutions - 3 Clovers

Thanks for stopping by,
your comments mean the world to me,
