My First DT Card

So excited & nervous at the same time to share this card with you!!!

This is my first ever DT Card & this one is for Challenge #12 over at Digi's With Attitude! Challenge Blog , where the theme is "New Years Resolutions" and as the title suggests, your project must reflect a New Years Resolution.
The image is one of Grumpy Gretchen and is called Martini! You can find her here!
I printed her onto some lightweight smooth card & coloured her with promarkers! I added a piece of recyled ribbon, from one of my birthday pressies, then matted the image and the computer generated sentiments onto some black lightweight card.
I then matted the image onto the pink & black designer backing paper (not sure where it's from as I was given it by a friend).The sentiments were attached with foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

To finish the card off, I attached a couple of sticky gems & a  built up paper flower which has a little rose as the centre!
These little paper roses are sooo sweet!
I hope you like it! 

Please pop over & join in the Challenge if you have the time!
Thanks for looking!
Update: the paper is Kate Knight for Dovecraft! Thanks for letting me know Maria x
