Last Magical Monday of 2009!!!

Happy Magical Monday!!
I hope you all enjoyed the festivities over the last few days with your family and loved ones - I sure did!! I have to admit it's been a nice break away from the computer, playing lots of new games with the kids and just having fun. Eating lots of goodies too!!!
This week's challenge has a little different twist to it. Nina has been giving away free images for 5 months now, that's 20 free images! How great is that?! So, this week along with Nilla's challenge listed below you can use "ANY" one of Nina's images you have acquired over the last 5 months or you can use the freebie "Orson with Cake" (which was Nina's very first freebie and can be found over on the TMITA blog), or you can buy a new one from her store Paper Cupcakes. Regardless of what image you choose to use, it must be one of Nina's.

Nilla brings us this weeks challenge. She is thinking "Happy New Year - Something Sparkling!" Use blings, stars, glitter or something typically used for the New Year on your card. Your card does not necessarily have to be for New Years, just reflecting the challenge as stated.
So without further ado, the image I chose for my card above is called 'Mandelina' - isn't she beautiful!! I didn't have the intention of a New Years Card when I made this, more I saw the potential for the sparkly/glittery challenge!! Check out her wings - I think she has more sparkle than Tinkerbell, lol!!! I used my copics to colour her and cut her out. The paper is from BG Indian Summer and I punched out small & medium size retro flowers. A pink gem adds additional bling to the card. The MS heart lace punch and some green silk ribbon give the finishing touches.
I loved making this card after all the Christmas ones that have been churned out recently. This would make for a perfect valentine, birthday, love or friendship card. My niece turns 12 in a couple of weeks so I think this will be perfect for her!
Well, that's all for today. Thanks for taking the time to pop on over and I hope you can find some spare time to join in with us at There's Magic in the Air this week. I'm off to tidy up after our celebration dinner with friends last night and then I have to go and have an x-ray done on my knee. I hope you all have a beautiful day whatever you're doing!

Shelly said...

Gorgeous card, Danielle!!! That image was already on my must have list and I want it even more after seeing your card.

Kim said...

Absolutely gorgeous, Danielle! When I first saw it I wondered what kind of punch you used to do those flowers so you could see the cs behind the pp but now I see it's two punches! Either way, the flowers are perfect and I LOVE all the sparkle! Thanks for the continuing inspiration and best wishes for a wonderful new year!

Danielle, you really did a beautiful job on this image, as all your cards. She is just stunning and lovely with all that sparkle, but I love the coloring and how you did her wings in the green just really makes the overall card and the pinks and browns are just soo lovely. I just love everything about this card!! Happy New Year my friend!
