Also this week we are kindly being sponsored by Whiff Of Joy Stamps who are donating a stamp from the Valentines Collection called 'Nora Blowing Kisses'. For a chance to win these great prizes all you have to do is enter the challenge and this week we want you to use 'Something New On Your Project'. A good excuse to try out all those lovely craft goodies that Santa brought you.

For my card I have used a new image and new papers. The image is another of the new LOTV stamps being released on 11th January and this gorgeous one is called 'Free'. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out using a circular Nestie. I resisted glittering her wings as I thought she would look lovely without. The paper lace has been punched with a MS border punch and I have added pearl flowers. I also added a pearl butterfly to the greeting. I just love the fresh look of my new papers which I got from Pink Petticoat so expect to see them on my cards a lot in the future as I can't get enough of them at the moment. Hope you like my card, thanks for looking.
