First card of the year

Welcome back to my blog and to a new decade everyone. So glad you're still with me. I was out of town for the holidays and really missed my craftspace :) I just brought a couple of ATCs to colour. So today I felt good enough to sit and make a card.
I used some new papers I bought at a sale and one of my new Whiff of joy stamps - Charlie as 007. I've been wanting to have him forever so I finally made a big order during the 20% of sale that they had on winterstamps. I also used my new qk die - the black scroll to the left.

I used a great sketch from papertake weekly.
Stamp with fun had a new year's theme as did lili of the valley. Stampin for the weekend had "new beginnings" as their theme and at creative card crew they had "anything goes". Stamp challenges wants you to use something new you got during the season. Pretty much everything is new on this card.

I also made an ATC using the same stamp. This ATC I made for the promarker challenge. They are having a mega Christmas challenge with amazing prizes until jan 5:th. The challenge is: ‘anything but a card - with a Christmas and New Year theme’.

Thanks for stopping by.
