Charisma Cardz DT - New Year

Good Morning!! Can you believe it's only 9 days to Christmas, how scary is that?! I'm nowhere near ready yet (gulp)! Anyway onto today's challenge over at Charisma Cardz, it's our second last for the year, and this week the theme is New Year Celebrations. I decided to go with a general card with a sentiment that reads "Wishing you sunshine all year through" which I thought could be appropriate for a New Year's card rather than the usual "Happy New Year" sentiment.I have used DCWV papers, Nana's Nursery and the gorgeous Hippie Chick by Sugar Nellie which I've coloured with Copics. The butterfly, which just in case you've not noticed me using more often lately, is a die from Little Claire's which I luurrvveee and the lace around my image is a Marianne die. The sentiment is one of LOTV's that I bought at the NEC in November and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've used stardust stickles all around the image and sentiment and on the butterfly too.

I was so excited when I saw that funky kits got more stock in of this cutie pie as I missed her when they had her from the launch. I think she is just sooooooo beautiful and can be used for so many different occassions. I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Bunny Zoe's - Sparkle and shine
CES Challenge - Anything but a Christmas Card
Craft your Days Away - Punch it out
Flutterby Wednesday - Anything goes
Sparkle Dreams - Sketch
Fab 'n Funky - Quick & Easy does it
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to hop on over to Charisma Cardz' blog for some fab inspiration from the rest of the dt and join in with the challenge. I'll be back tomorrow with my card for Totally Papercrafts so until then lotsa luv xxxxx
