My first card for 2012

This is my first card  for the New Year.
This is for a 30th birthday and I was asked for no cuties and no bling
but I was allowed the ribbon and a few pearls.
Hard! you're telling me.
I have to admit I do like things very plain and simple myself
but I do love my PB's and Tilda's and LOTV.

Anyway I took a deep breath and this is what I came up with
and I am really quite pleased with it which is saying something as
mostly I want to change something or wish I hadn't added this or that.

The Swiss dots folder came out as you can see.
What ever did we do before that came out?
It fits in anywhere is so easy to contiue over a larger section as I have on the inside. 

The punch is an EK one which I love and i have experimented with it.
don't you just love the corners on the inside section?
Will be using that again for sure.

The colour hasn't come out too well. It is Limeade Bazzill and is
really striking over the Black.

Am entering this in :
Make it Monday- Where anything goes

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year period with family and friends
Fun over it's back to work.

Sooo hard when January is just about solid tennis on TV.
