I can't believe another fortnight has gone by already - where is this year going to??? lol! This is a card I've thoroughly enjoyed making. Our challenge at CACB this time is "Ring in the new but don't ring out the old" and we want you to use new and old together. It can be stash, techniques, inspiration or equipment as a few examples. I've used a new digi stamp - the Faberge Style Egg - country scene and coloured it using a favourite technique by applying several shades of blue and a black ink from memento and brilliance with duster brushes. I've used new inspiration from lovely DT member Irene and printed just the base out onto pealescent silver paper and embossed with fine detail silver ep. I must say that I'm delighted with the effect. I've shaped this slightly before mounting it onto a nesties label die. I've used two neglected punches to embellish the corners and my much loved embossing folders to emboss the pearlescent paper. I was inspired by Digital Tuesday to try something I usually shy away from - white on white.......and I LOVE the effect so I won't be shying away from it again!
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
- Crafty Purple Frog - new designs/techniques
- Stampin' B's Design Team - Use a die cut.
- My Partner in Crafting Crime - Something New

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and I hope you'll get the chance to come along and join in with us for this challenge and give me lots to come an 'oooh & aaah' over.
