Hi there peeps, here's my first card for 2017 Crafty Calendar Challenge DT. This month we were given the theme of 'Something New' - new baby, new home, New Year etc. etc. Well, as you know, I like to do a bit of lateral (or odd) thinking and I need to make cards that I know I will send so I decided on 'using' something new ta da! I've had a couple or three new dies recently and just loved this one from Creative Expressions called 'Cathedral Background', I also used another new one - Special Occasions Border Dies (ref B242) from Cheery Lynn. (These are both new to me by the way, although they may have been around for a while).
The card underneath the oval die below is the same purple satin mirri as above.
