New Beginnings Card Challenge

New Beginnings... new growth... what a great outlook for a new year... For me, it's lots of new beginnings... the wonder of new grandchildren, new adventures and imagining what's in store for all of us. Just Imagine...

I made this card for myself, as a type of time capsule for a new year, and to remind myself about the wonder of new moments, new beginnings, new years and new lives.

Just Imagine..
Albert Enstein had a saying I love...

Imagination is more important than knowledge

Imagine all the wonders of 2010 and all the joy of new beginnings.

I went wild with my brand new Copic blending pen, and found it works on watercolour pencils as well as Copic Markers. It's also great for taking out a bit of colour, which is very handy for fixing mistakes.

The background is my favourite Twinkling H2O colour - Solid Gold. The photo doesn't really show all the lovely gold twinkly background. Mo's digital stamp is perfect for this theme.

This is my card for the New Beginnings card challenges at -
