New Year's Cherub


Welcome to the first Design Team Challenges of 2012 and the January Releases next week for Flourishes!  

Here's the Pre-Release Challenge this Month:  Ring in the new year with “Father Time” or “Baby New Year” – this challenge is a fight between new and old! To be in the running, simply use a card that showcases an image of time (i.e. one of our calendars, the Moments in Time set, etc) or one that showcases little baby new year (i.e. a baby card). Either will get you in the running. :) 


I chose to create a little New Year's Cherub that could be a New Years card, or a baby card.    I've colored up this very pretty Angelic Love set and some pretty copic markers.  The paper is MME Vanity Fair.  and I've used several dies from Spellbinder's:  Labels Fourteen Nestabilities, Ribbon Banners, and Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, and then a few gems as accents - Prima Crystals , and then some pretty ribbons Crochet and irridescent cream.  


So sweet isn't it?  

Join us on the challenge and you could win the January Releases, which you will LOVE, I'm tellin' ya! I had SO much fun with them this month!  Can't wait to show you next week!  Upload your link to the FLLC Blog on today's post.
