Something New, Challenge 50

Hi guys,well here we are once again the start of a new year,mine literally went out with a bang new years,eve we had a chimney fire. Yes everthing is okay,so 2011,certainly did arrive in style,just lucky I spotted it in time,well smelt it actually.
So hope your 2011 was not quite as eventful as mine.
Right over at Creative inspriations,this week,the theme we have is something New. Choosen,by my buddie Jude can be new,papers image stash anything,that is new.
We are lucky enough to be sponsered by Simon Says, who will be our monthly sponsers of 2011,the prize this month is $10 to spend in there store. So massive thank you to them,plus this week we are also being sponsered by whiff of Joy who are offering the winner one of there gorgeous stamps.
Well I went for new papers new images,and of course my new prisma's
So here it is,
The paper I have used is from the paper celler,which I also used in my previous,post then I stamped the chandelier onto the paper,then stamped and cut out the bird cage,and birds.  Added to 3d foam,and adheared to the card,colored with my pencils, And finished with some blue ribbon,and some adhesive stones.
I have also made this card using another of the images,from Kanban along with the papers to match too,which also come in this set.  These i printed off the CD,added some adhesive stones,ribbon and charm. Once again image colred with Prisma,s

So all is left for me to say is HAPPY NEW YEAR,and may you all have a great one,love to you all and for always giving me such great support,hugs cheryl xx
ABC keep it simple
