Cuttlebug challenge - sanding your embossing

Well, even though it is minus however many degrees outside, spring is around the corner. My card box is looking a bit drab ,so I made a best wishes ( multipurpose) card. The cuttlebug challenge is back this week, they want us to sand our embossing. I started making another card for this one however the card was not right ,for this particular challenge. It will reappear for some other challenge, I am sure. I used some pearlescent pink scrap card and embossed and sanded it. I stamped an image ,that has been in my stamp box for ages. I used promarkers to colour in. I added a bright ribbon and some more cardstock from the stash. Although this is simple I sometimes like cards like this. I am staying in tonight. I have four small children so have done so for quite a few years. I normally hear the fireworks that are let off on the River Thames so I put the T.V on and listen and watch!!! Much cosier this way!!! I wish all my lovely crafting and blogging friends a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
