Lets' Celebrate

Well folks, this is my last blog post of 2011.  I started my blog in August of this year.  I really did not know what to expect.  Would anyone really want to look at my creations?  However, as a result of my blog, I have joined the fabulous Dream Valley design team and even won Top 3 in a few challenges.  I have even gained some followers along the way for which I thank you.  I am grateful to each and every one of you who visits my blog.  Your encouragement and support are truly appreciated.  Most of all I thank you all for the inspiration you bring to me every day.  Your creations are just stunning.
Which bring me nicely onto today's creation.
I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge as the basis for my card design.  The stamp image is a LOTV one (my eldest daughter bought it for me at christmas).  I stamped her onto one of my new spellbinder dies and coloured her in using promarkers.  The papers used are by Papermania and they were mounted onto coredinations cardstock.  A scalloped edge piece of coredinations was used at the bottom with lace border added.  The flower and skeleton leaves are from WOC.  The butterfly is a punch that I have.  Although you can't see it very well I punched the butterfly out of vellum four times to give some dimension.  The lovely sentiment was provided by Aud Sentiments for their current challenge (if you wanted to use it).
In keeping with my resolution of trying to improve the inside of my cards how do you think I have got on.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - use sketch
Sweet Stamps - #47 Celebrate
Aud Sentiments - #44  Anything goes (can use sentiment provided if you wish)
Squiggle Stamps - Lets Celebrate
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

All that remains is for me to wish you all a happy, healthy and crafty 2012.  I look forward to seeing all your fab creations in 2012.
