Happy New Year!! Hope you have all celebrated the New Year in your own way and made some wonderful memories. I had a wonderful evening spent with my sister and her family and some friends of their's and saw the new year in watching the city firework from the decking with all our kids!!!! And today (in Australia) we are heading down to the beach for a few days to spend with friends.. And the weather is scorching so perfect beach weather!!
So it's my turn to post over on the Digi Bell's blog today and I have this gorgeous gate fold card to share with you.

I've used Little Rapunzel from Elisabeth Bell's Digi collection and I coloured her in with Tria markers and glitter pens!! I followed the Craft your Passion Sketch (and moved it around a little bit) and used the Sisterhood of Crafters colour combination Black white plus one other colour. The papers are from Core'dinatiions - when I saw this I had to have them) (I really am hopeless when it comes to papers). I then just added some flower and rhinestones!!
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
* Sisterhood of Crafters - Black, White plus One other colour
* Fuss and Fancy Friday Challenges - Animal Print or Happy Birthday
* Stampin' For the weekend - Anything Goes
* Wags 'n Whiskers - Fancy Folds
* Elphine House - Around We Go


  1. This is wonderful Leath, great to hear you had a wonderful NYE have a wonderful time at the beach and an amazing 2012!!

  2. Wow this is pretty neat!!! Love the detail and how you divided the mattings to allow the gate opening~~Just wonderful!! There is something about black making things POP:) Too funny how we used the same sketch--Hee Hee
    We are having a very very windy and cold day here in the Northern US--Got 2 inches of snow early this morning--yuck!!
