New Year Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Jeez, how bad can the weather be? It's been raining cats & dogs and gale force winds are blowing around the house (well, maybe I'm exaggerating just a teensy bit) throughout the week. However, that does give me every excuse to stay in and craft, right? ;)

This is a birthday card I made for my mum, hope she won't have a look on my blog before her birthday (no chance!). Oh well :) My card coincides well with the new Card Makin' Mamas Challenge: NEW YEAR! Use something that is new to you, whether it's a new technique, new stash you received over the festive period or anything else new! I've used the Hunkydory Classic Cameo card kit, my hubby gave it to me for my birthday, but since then it has been sitting quietly in its wrapper waiting to be used. Not anymore I say, time to break open the new stash :) Hope you like the card, it's one of those accordion cards (is that the official term for it? I don't know), I think it looks pretty classy and vintage. What do you guys think?
