Happy New Year!   I have a card to share with you today.  I am using several of the new sets released today.  First of all, I decided to go a bit simple for the outside of my card.  I am using the Bleeding Hearts image.  This is the perfect size and fun to color.  I added some subtle sparkle with a Sakura gel pen.  I added a sentiment  from Mini Tags 3.   For the inside of the card, I decided to do a bit of a collage with the new stamps.  I am using God's Love butterfly image stamp several times in a muted ink.  I then stamped with some vintage photo a script background at an angle hitting and missing in spots for a more distressed feel.  I inked the edges and added the Love scripture that comes in the set at the bottom perfectly placed using the Stamp a ma jig.  I also added the quote at the top using the stamp a ma jig.  There is still place to write in the middle.  Love this look and effect.  


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings for a Wonderful 2012!  From here, hop to Dawn's blog
