Happy New Year!

First I would like to wish everyone all the best for the coming year, I hope it proves to be a happy and peaceful one for you.

January's theme for the challenge over on Country View Crafts is monochromatic so I thought I'd send you my good wishes in the form of a New Year card in soft shades of creamy brown. Lots of Antique Linen distress paint here and die cutting.......

Started off by running a piece of card through my Big Shot along with a That Special Touch brickwork mask, then I brushed some Antique Linen Distress Paint over the top, followed by a little distressing with some Brushed Corduroy Distress Paint.  Added a die cut clock front (Tim Holtz weathered clock face), then made a large flower using the Tattered Florals die and a few leave with the Spellbinders foliage set. Then finished it with a little hand cut and stamped banner.

All the best for 2014,
