A Fond Farewell to 2010

This lovely poignant image is a Sweet Pea Stamp. I always look forward to a new year and yet am always a little sad to say goodbye to the year before, some good bits, some bad bits but not many this last year, lots to be thankful for and a fit and generally healthy family, certainly nothing more that I can ask for coming into the new year. I wish you all a most wonderful 2011, with lots of goodness, memories and marvellous adventures.
This card has been coloured with my promarkers and has been layered up with soft greens and mints. I have added a couple of buttons (recycled from one of hubbies old shirts) and used one of my own sketches. I have hi-lighted the wings on the largest butterfly with some papermania gems.
I have two friends who love this style of card, I now have to decide which one will get her for a New Year thank you note. Hmmm ... Perhaps I should make another in similar tones...
I am entering this card into:-
In a Sweet Pea Dream - Ribbon and Bows
Papertake weekly - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky 54 - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesday 136 - Open Challenge and Blog HOP
Thanks for looking
