A new design team!

I am really delighted to announce my new appointment as design team member for the Crafty Calendar Challenge and am excited to share my first project with you today. Our first  challenge for this year is New Beginnings with an optional extra of punched borders and our sponsor this week is Pink Gem Designs.
For my card I chose a gorgeous digi image from Meljens Designs which I coloured with my Promarkers. The backing paper is by Papermania and the border at the bottom was punched with my (only) Martha Stewart punch - must save up for some more! The Mr & Mrs stamp is from a new set by American Crafts , I love the flourish border on it. The two hearts are Sizzix die cuts, an old favourite which I've not used for ages, and the words on them are rub downs from a wedding sheet I've also had lying around for a long time. The lovely blue rose is from Wild Orchid.

     


This card also works for the challenges at:
Delicious Doodles - try something new or use something new
Dutch Dare
  - new beginnings
Creative Card Crew  - new beginnings
AiFactory - new beginnings
Sassy Studio Designs - use something new
Rainbow Lady's - something new
Paper Crafting Journey - use a digi
Stampin' B's - use an old favourite and something new
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Fairy Fun Fridays - new beginnings
