"Happy New Year" - Scrapbooking in Greece & Purple Pumpkin!

Hello my dear friends!!

Happy new year to everyone!!! My wish for you in 2013 is to be healthy, happy, lucky, loved and creative!!! I am sorry for the late post but I was away on vacation and then I was in bed with tonsillitis :(
But now I am back and I feel much better!!!

So here is a card I made for "Scrapbooking in Greece" and I dedicate it to all of you!!!

As you can see, I have created a tree using some yummy Purple Pumpkin spotty buttons!! 
The card is very simple but I love it! I used my bigshot to make the embossed background and then I inked it with distress inks. I have also used green washi tape all around to create a frame!

Now, the new sketch by Crece over at Purple Pumpkin blog looks like this:

And my take on it:


I have used lots of Purple Pumpkin goodness!!!
Doily and red button!

I love these vintage buttons! This cluster is 100% PP products! The felt and crochet doilies, buttons, brown flower, craft tag, washi tape and twine!!!

Materials used:
Papers & stickers: Echo Park
Embellishments: Purple Pumpkin
Distrezz-it-all by Zutter

I hope you all had great holidays and that 2013 will be the best year ever!!!
Thanks for coming by! I'll be back soon ;)
Hugs and kisses!!!

Indeed, this could be called as the most incredible way of welcoming the New Year and saying good bye to your going year. Wonderful piece of art there, I really appreciate your creative tempo and efforts of making such gorgeous layout and putting them over your blog. Keep it up.
