You WILL have a good time! :P

When I was still in primary school, two of the boys in my class had tried to slip away un-noticed because they had decided that the school Christmas party was beneath them, and I can vividly remember one of the teachers dragging them along the corridor saying "You WILL attend the Christmas party and you WILL have fun!" It amuses me still, and this New Year's card has the same feel, I think. You just wouldn't dare to NOT have a good time, would you? :P
The image is a digi called Vicky by Stamp It Crazy, and the paper comes from Admiring the Lovelorn by Crafty Chaos Designs.
These are the challenges I made it for:
Stamp with Fun - sketch
Stamp It Crazy - happy new year
Etsy Inspired - be inspired by an item from La Pomme. I was inspired by the soft blue shades here and here, and the flowers are supposed to look like the pine cone here.
Karber Weekly Challenge - use flowers
Everybody Art - happy new year
Easy Craft Projects - use only old stash
For Fun Challenges - 1 image, 2 buttons or brads, 3 different papers. I've only used one patterned paper, but I'm counting that and the pale and dark blue plain papers as well, hope that's ok :)

Wow, you're right, she looks just that little scary. I know several people that would just LAUGH at this card. AWESOME! You're totally right it does have that feel. I hope my students don't see me that way!
Thanks for joining us at for Fun Challenges.
