Something new for SCH

The first challenge of the year over at  Sugar Creek Hollow is  'Something new'.
We ask that you use a new supply piece or  try a new technique, and remember our Vintage Shabby Chic style.
I was lucky to have  some new Tonic  Studio die cuts to play with,  so I used one for my circle layer, on this card. The fashionable ladies are from Graphics 45 papers. All shading is Vintage photo distress ink. I was lucky to have some ribbon in my stash a similar shade to the base card.

Sorry I haven't been around visiting you all lately,  sadly  we lost  a close family relative  on the Sunday before Christmas.  So, a New Year has begun and I am slowly getting  back to my routines, where crafting as always  will feature higher on the list than the dreaded,   ''.
I know this is late but I hope you all have a healthy, happy  and crafty 2014.
