Out With The Old, In With The New!

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year! A brand new year of crafting awaits, so I thought today would be a perfect opportunity to show a card with a theme of "new".

A colleague of mine has just moved into a new house, so it gave me the opportunity not only to make a card on the theme of "new beginnings" but also to use a new stamp - I have actually had this one for months but it has never seen ink before!! (It's far from alone!!) Indeed if I were to have one crafty New Year resolution, it would be to use what I've got before I buy more lol! (where have I heard that one before??)

Stamps: LotV "Moving Day" and "Everyday Sentiment Circles";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Paper: LotV Nitwits collection "Promises";
Supplies: roses from Wild Orchid Crafts; green blossom from The Hobby House; purple blossom from Hobbycraft; ribbon and square doily from my stash;
Tools: Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.
