Time for the new year

Here's two wonderful images from Ike's Art today, they are having a contest over on their blog for the start of the new year. This week's challenge is called New Beginnings.  I thought this beautiful maiden (Thoughts) and timepiece (Pocket Watch) were just perfect for the challenge.  I am using gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress for this card.
The base cardstock is paper bag in 5.5 square share.  I then added corners using Pop Tones Cotton Candy.  I am using some wonderful Hambly Studio Screenprints in Mini Graph  to add a layer under the image as well as on the corners.  Finally I used some Hambly Studio Overlays, Vintage Circle Wallpaper Pink , to layer under the Pocket Watch image.  The images were both printed out on Neenah Solar White Classic crest papers and colored with copic markers.

Have a great Sunday everyone!  Check out the fun challenge over at Ike's Art and don't forget about the gorgeous paper at Paper Temptress
