FIRST CARD OF 2013

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends old and new.
I hope that you all enjoyed the holiday festivities and received some wonderful presents.
I wanted to make a card 'just because' and followed my mojo's lead this is what I came up with.
I was a very lucky lady to receive a Christmas card from Lorraine with this little stamp inside she is called
Molly Mittens Sitting from Tickled Pink Stamps, I love her.
For my card I have used a scalloped white 6x6 card base, I used a embossing folder on some white card it is a flower design 6x6 folder.
I used my Cheery Lynn die cut frame on some turquoise pearlescent card, I also used memory box Chloe and Gentle Leaf dies, i coloured the stamp with promarkers.  I have added some roses, sentiment, butterflies and a sliver satin bow.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking
