Happy New Year!

First off, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! My hope that 2013 will be a healthy, happy and prosperous year...either more so than last year or as a change! Secondly, because it's the first of the month, that means it's time for another sketch challlenge from the Paper Sweeties! I decided to revisit an older technique that I had mastered to come up with this delicate beauty here:

For my technique, you can visit this post here, and for a similar type card, see this post. The method is really easy, however, it is a bit tedious. I think it's worth the time though when it comes out right.

Here's the sketch that we are working with the whole month of January.

Visit the Paper Sweeties' blog for all the details and prize information.
