2017: A new beginning...

Happy New Year!

I'm back with a card I made for our new challenge
at Glitter n Sparkle -
"new beginnings!"

I love A Day For Daisies and was thrilled when I knew they were our sponsor this week...

I used the image "dandelions in a mason jar."
and printed it alongside a sentiment which I typed.
I coloured this image carefully, as 
I wanted the jar to look like glass. 
I got a load of promarkers and spectrum noir pens for Christmas
from my Hubby, as I needed some new pens...
I love 'em!

So... I no have many more colours to use...some 'darks' and 'pastels' too,
as well as new flesh colours, which I was desperately in need of.
I used pastel beige and one of the pastel greys to
colour the dandelions. 
The finishing touch on the mage was to add a shadow along the bottom.
I embossed around the image and
matted it on some paper and embossed around that piece too.

A touch of glamour dust around the inner frame and a 
Martha Stewart punched butterfly
finished off this card.
