New Year Flower

I had a bit of inspiration and using a freebie at Rusty Pickles Digital Delights I made this flower

and another view

I like it so much I have shown it twice!!!!!!
The background paper is from Funky Fairys where there is an amazing closing down sale - unfortunatley Shaz has decided to close her fab shop so pop over there as soon as you can to get some fab stuff at 50% off.
I coloured the leaves using my new prezzie - Inktense crayons - I am so pleased with them. I have used one of the sketches at The Pink Elephant as shown below -

 The final touch was some glitter and a sentiment using a freebie from Miss Cutie Pie with an added peel off.

I have connected the leaves/petals together using a pearl brad. Also I have used my nestie, I am so pleased with this purchase.

I will also enter this card in the following challenges :-

The Little Paper Shop - Navy Blue, Pale Blue and Silver,

My Time to Craft - Anything Goes,

Penny's Challenge - monochramatic New Year and,

Lots To Do - Free theme.

Looking forward to your thoughts.
