Happy New Year! - Gesundes Neues Jahr!

Wishing all of you a Happy Healthy & Prosperous New Year! Ich wuensche Euch allen ein frohes und gesundes neues Jahr! Hope you all had fanstastic holidays and as promised I'm back today with a new project. It's December release review day today on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog. New never before seen projects created by some of the Whimsy DT using images from the December release. Have a look and get inspired! -click here-

My card shows an Elisabeth Bell image called Bella Sole Love Letters and the sentiment is from the December release as well: Just a Note Notables 6. This image is so beautifully romantic so I kept my whole card in a romantic soft style. And of course the Whimsy Designer Papers 'Cottage Garden' where a perfect fit!

I colored using my Copics and here are the colors I used:
Hair: E18-15-YR21-20
Skin: E11-00-000-0000-R20-00
Dress: V17-15-01-0000
Jeans: BV34-31-0000
Hat: B02-01-00-000-0000
Reds: R05-02-00
Greens: YG17-03-00-0000; YG 99-97-93
Letter: E30-31-34
Chocolate Box: E79-74-71-70

I decorated the inside to match the outside

Flowers I used on my card are from WOC as is the filigree corner embellishment. Rhinestone swirls are from 'Want 2 Scrap', charms, burlap string and ribbon are from my stash!

This card was made by order and has been sold. Thanks so much Sonja!
And here's the card in it's handmade decorated box. My cards are always 3D-ish due to the flowers, ribbon bows, embellies etc. so they wont fit in any envelopes without smashing all the decorations. And these little boxes are made so quickly and they add so much to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful first day of the new year!
