Happy New Year!!!!!!!

I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and safe New Year 2012 and wanted to share this card I made for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge #221.  I was in the mood for something vintage so I went through my stash of images and found this beauty.  I coordinated all my papers with the colors and feel of the image.  I didn't have black metal filigree corners so I took a couple of bronze ones and inked them with pitch black and snow cap Alcohol ink, love the result.
A close up of my hand dyed seam binding and the little layered flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day.
