Happy New Year's everyone! I know it has been a few months since my last post. But, life just seems to get in the way sometimes. I am back with my first card for 2012. I call it Celebrate, but it looks like a Valentine's card. I used a digi by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. This is Violet. She is so cute. Here is the recipe for the card:

Cardstock - Red CS is by The Paper Co. Pink CS is by Cricut. And the DP is Sweet Cakes by Doodlebug Designs.
Heart Doily - by Hallmark
Embossed hearts - Embossing folder by Provo Craft for Cuttlebug.
Copic sketch markers were used in these colors:

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

Saturated Canary Challenge - #8 - Clean and Simple

Sparkle Forum Challenge - Anything but a Christmas Card

Card Crafter's Circle Challenge - #4 - Make It Colourful!

A Gem of a Challenge - #37 - Photo Inspiration

Crafty Emma Challenge - #67 - Anything Goes

Dream Valley Challenge - #23 - Anything Goes

Paper Sundaes Challenge - #102 - Saturated Colours

I hope you like my creation and I enjoy everyone's comments. Have a blessed day everyone.
