Card for Five Challenges

I made this card yesterday but didn't have chance to post it on my blog.  Yet again it's using more bits from the box on the table - I am being sooooooooooo good - but I'm not sure how long it will last!!!  The backing paper was a DCWV pad I bought in 2008 and never finished in 2008 or 2009 so maybe 2010 will be the year.  All the papers have gone in the box.  The printed vellum is also from the box.  The decoupage is a Forever Friends Die-cut and isn't he just the cutest.  I have highlighted areas of the decoupage with Sakura Clear Stardust Pen (no 700).  I have finished the card off with some brads (these were taken from a handmade card we got for Christmas but due to bad treatment on its journey it arrived to us in a terrible state so I took off the brads to use again), a ticket sentiment from Allissa's Paper Town and some shapes cut out from backing paper - yes from the box!!!

This card is being entered into the following challenges:

Sassy Designs by Susie - Card for a boy with an option of an animal (well I've gone for the Forever Friends bear himself)

Die-cut Dreams by Susie and Vicki - Recycle it

Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge - not to use a stamped or digi image - quite a hard one for me

ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for bells (the words Jingle Bells are on the printed vellum)

Forever Friends Challenge Blog - Quick and simple.

I made some Forever Friends Christmas cards for 2009 - they were great, it was a kit off QVC.

Still keeping to your New Year's Resolution - well done.
