Happy New Year to All

Good Morning All, and a Very Happy New Year to you I hope your Christmas was wonderful, ours was very quiet as both of us were suffering with a chest infection and didnt think it would be fair to pass it on to any of the family, though it was one of them that past it onto us. Anyway Missy enjoyed opening her present and we both had a few between us to open and Ive a feeling she thought she should have opened them to.
I made this card just before the New Year and posted it on the Facebook Sundays with Santa Challenge page, its a page were each week some of us start to collect our cards for Christmas and its a good way of getting ahead of all those that we need these days. This is a Funky Kits image and I have printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, I then cut her out with the new Tonic layering dies, and after I had cut her out I used glitter on her wings and some of the other things like the bobbles on her coat and the want.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of blue card, the papers are from Nitwits "A Merry Christmouse" and as theres a mouse in the image I thought it was quite appropriate for this card. I have used four papers and layered them as shown. The mounted image was then placed towards the left, and the sentiment which is from my stash and cut out with one of the labels Nestabilitie Dies down in the right hand corner.
To finish of I have punched out some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punches and then glittered them with German Glass glitter and latered them up and then placed them three at the top on the right and one at the bottom on the left.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
