First Card of 2010

Wow what a way to start the year with a card that fits 5 challenges. I have also used a stamp that has been sat in my drawer for a couple of months & I think he will get quite a few inkings this year. This card fits the following challenges.....

Sketch.......Sketch Saturday
Theme - Something "NEW".......Cards For Men
Theme - Something "NEW".......Fussy & Fancy
Theme - Something "NEW".......Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge
Theme - Fave Technique/Item of 2009.......Crafty Cardmakers

I have used a High Hopes stamp as I rediscovered stamping in 2009 & really love it again. I used a mixture of pens to colour in my ant. As the card is for a fella I wanted to keep the colours & embellishments fairly simple.

Here is a close up

I took the papers through to the inside of the card. This is the first post I have done since linking my blog to my facebook profile so here's hoping it works lol!!! x Clare x

Pens Used :
Copics: BGo9, C-3, E29,
Promarkers: Marsh Green, Ivory, Terracota
Tombow: 977

Card: Double Sided Scrapbook Paper from my shop
Embellishments: Chipboard Buttons - Crate Paper,
Sentiment: Hand Written
