New Year - New Beginnings

Still no luck on finding my camera charger - I have absolutely no idea where it is and it's driving me crazy.  I used my cell phone to take these photos but I don't like it because it has taken FOREVER to upload!  Oh well, such is life - I just hope my charger turns up soon!  Anyways I created this as a gift for my mom.  She needed a new calendar for her desktop for 2011 so I thought this would be just perfect for her.  The designer paper is from Kaisercraft and I love this line!  I colored my Midsummer Tilda image with my copics and cut her out with my deckled rectangle spellbinders.  I inked the edges with Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink and added three mini prima roses.  I kept it clean and simple, but I love the way it turned out!  I made it into a box drawer card so she can hide some goodies inside.
