a card with Izzy

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I can't believe it's the last day of 2009 already!? It's been a great year for me and I hope it's been wonderful for you, too! My best wishes to you all for the coming year. =)

I made this card using Sketch #7 from The Greeting Farm blog's " 12 Days of Sketches. Here is the sketch:

As you can see, I tweaked the sketch a bit by using the butterflies as the flowers on the side of the oval/Izzy. You know I love to give sketches a little "personal touch." =)

I used the adorable Izzy for this card. I think she has the prettiest eyes. I added some Glossy Accents on them to make them shine even more! =)

That's it for today. Please come back tomorrow for another edition of TESC sketch sample card. We took a week off and will be back tomorrow! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
