My first GDT card for Digi's with Attitude!

I'm thrilled to be joining Digi's with Attitude! as a guest designer for January and this week the theme is 'New Year Resolutions'! I've used this gorgeous image 'Martini Gretchen',  don't you just love the look on her face?? You can find 'Martini Gretchen' and loads of other fab digistamps here at the Digi's with Attitude store!

Martini Gretchen is coloured with promarkers and I've used a corner stamp from Clarity stamps on the image and on the bp (from k&Co). I've used black card from my stash for matting and layering and for the swirly flourished (cut using a Marianne die). I've used the last of my yellow floradoodles and created a sentiment on the pc using a quote from Mae West :
"I generally avoid temptation, unless I can't resist it'
I thought that it would be a perfect quote for this weeks fun theme and would just suit the lovely Martini Gretchen!! The sentiment is die cut using nesties label 10 and attached with  yellow brads (new) and black velvet ribbon. I've added a little black lace bow and some faux black pearls made using ranger black enamel accents (I've only just got this and its wonderful stuff!!)

I'm entering this cardx in the following challenges:
Creative Craft World: New Year resolutions
Kaboodle Doodles: Anything goes
The Crazy Challenge: All things New
Creative inspirations: Something new
Do it with digi's: New Beginnings
Ai Factory: New beginnings
Cute card thursday: Out with the old (my bp and floradoodle flower)
Sassy Studio Designs: Something new

I can't wait to see everyone's New Year Resolution creations, I don't usually make a new year resoloution as I've got no willpower whatsoever so the quote on this card is just right for me lol. You don't have to use a Digi's with Attitude! image but if you have one we'd love to see your creation! Don't forget to look on the challenge blog and pick up this months fabulous freebie image :-)
