Beauty sleep

Happy New Year to all of you! I'm here to share my DT card for the new challenge over at Catch the Bug, and we'ere kicking off 2016 with an ANYTHING GOES challenge.

I decided to make an easel card, I don't do different folds very often, I could be lots more adventurous in my choice of card shapes...

I've used an image and sentiment from a set called Morning Troll, they're cut with stitched dies from Dienamics and the image is colored with Promarkers. I've also used a flower die I believe is from Diesire, it came free with a magazine a while back, and the leaves I made using heart dies from Memory Box. I also added a stamped sentiment, cut with Spellbinders dies.
Lace, ribbon, brads and bling from my stash.
My "new" element is the paper with hearts.

This card is also for these challenges:
ABC Challenge - Y is for Your Choice
Dies R Us Challenge - #40 Something New
Creative Corner - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - #66 Always Anything Goes

A beautiful card Pia, such a fabulous image and lovely colour combination. I also need to try and be more adventurous with my card shapes, I always seem to make square cards.
Sorry I haven't been around for a while - hubby whisked me away for a surprise break!
Wishing you a very Happy New Year, I hope it's a good one.
