Mo's Digital Challenge 12 - New Beginnings

This is the last challenge at Mo's challenge blog for the year 2009 and our hostess, Lydia has set it as New Beginnings; a New Year card, new baby, wedding, new job etc..., anything that means a new beginning to you.

I combined 2 images for this card, Hoppin' Happy and Aaron Celebrating using Photoshop Elements.  I sized them to fit in my Curved Rectangle Nestabilitie and then printed them onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
   Jeans - B91, G21, G40
   T shirt - Y21, G21
   Shirt - G40, G21
   Hair - 08
   T shirt - R22, R24
   Skirt - BV02, V12
   Boots - V21
   Hair - E19
Skin - E000, E00, E02
Bronte - E41, E42, R20
Balloons - R22, R24, BV02, V12, YR20, Y21, G40, G21, B91
I airbrushed B21 around the image before removing it from the die.  I also added Range Glossy Accents to the balloons for a little shine.  The DP is from Cloud 9 Design.  The saying is computer generated.  The little star bursts are from Stamps by Judith.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.  I appreciate your support of my blog and hope you will continue to visit in the upcoming year.

Hey Pinky, Happy New Year to you!!! Love the combo images -- you do that perfectly with Mo's fun drawings. your coloring is outstanding, as usual. Maybe this year you'll decide to move south and be my neighbor, so you can school me on coloring and with that evil brayer.
