Happy New Year....

Hi Susan here.....

Today at The Stamping Bazaar we have our seventh challenge starting, the theme is a sketch designed by Emma, see below.....

For full details of the challenge and to check out the fabulous inspirational ideas from the design team call across to The Stamping Bazaar.

Now to my creation....

I have followed the sketch and decided to do something different from a card, and because Christmas celebrations lead into New Year parties I have made a party invitation.... 

My backing papers are all from an 8x8 scrapbooking pad by DCWV called A Pocket Full of Posies, the papers are all pre-glittered and are perfect for celebrations. I have distressed the edges and added more glitter. The plain blue card has been cut with a zig zag edge and matted onto a brown backer, all the edges again have been distressed and glittered. The lace and ribbon are from our local market.

This beautiful cute little image is another new design by Marina Neira and is available at The Stamping Bazaar Store, her name is 'Partytime Louisa'. I coloured her using Promarkers and added glitter here and there, I then cut the design into an oval shape and an oval scalloped backer, the edges have been distressed and glittered.

The tickets are from Raindrop Echo Designs designed by Ann Vento, I have mixed them myself, by blanking out the middles of Ann's tickets and putting in my own sentiments. The edges of the tickets have been coloured using Promarkers and then glittered.

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves I made myself.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creation, and for your many wonderful comments that you leave. I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
