Congratulations on your promotion.

I made this card for a male friend who recently got a promotion and as there are so many challenges around with the theme of new or new beginnings I thought I would enter this card for most of them as it is a new job card sort of so I hope it will count for the various challenges.

The layout is from Friday sketches but I turned it on its side and I even tried decorating the inside of my card using part of the layout, but my card insides still need alot of work to improve, but tiny steps.

Digital Ink have a colour theme use either gold or silver and grey or black something glittery , ribbon and distress. I'm not sure if my card will count as I really don't like distressing and my interpretation of grey or black became a little fuzzy as I coloured my clown using shades of grey but he then looked like he was black and white, and my papers are shades of grey but from a black and white paper mix pad and then I went and used black ribbon as I had no grey and black backing for my clown, so confused is not the word but I'll enter anyway.

Cards for men have their second challenge and the theme is new so as my card is for a man to celebrate his new job in the form of promotion I will enter that along with all these below who all have similar themes for the same reason.
Fussy and Fancy 1st challenge- new.
Stampin for the weekend-new.
By the cute and girly-new.
Secret saturday crafter- new beginnings and our friends promotion is certainly a new beginning for him.
Finally  The craft Garden has a theme of new too so that will be another for me to enter.

Happy new year to all I have not yet wished it to and hope you all keep warm and cosy if the weather is snowy where you are as it is here, and thankyou for visiting as always.
