My first card of 2012

It has been such a nice change to make a card that wasn't related to Christmas - I think I was totally exhausted of snowmen and red/green and even glitter.  Not a sprinkle of glitter on this card!

I used one of my most favourite Tilda's for this card - I have so many Tilda's still un-inked; something that I must rectify this year.  I added a few tufts of grass and a butterfly from another stamp set and I have coloured the image with pro markers.

One of the things I've decided for this year is to try and make the insides of my cards as nice as the outsides.  You can't see much on this picture - but its a start!  The pretty papers are Dovecraft and they are from the Tea House pad.  The flowers are from my stash and there's just a couple of dots of pink card candi too.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Robyn's Fetish - Anything goes
Secret Crafter - Anything goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything goes
I love pro markers - Anything goes

Thanks for looking today,
