Final DT card of 2011

Well, this is it, my final post of 2011, this year has flown by so quickly don't you think?
This is my final Sketch Saturday DT card of 2011, we're sponsored by...

who have another wonderful prize for our challenge winner,
Will the lucky winner be you?

Here's my card...

My daughter asked me to make an anniversary card for her to give to her boyfriend, ahhhh young love :)

Of course I immediately thought of using this stamp from SU's "summer by the sea" stamp set. Stamped with memento and coloured with promarkers.
Emma told me which colours to use.
The sky was sponged with SU bashful blue ink.
The papers are by My Mind's Eye. The spotty is from the "complete boy" paper pad. The other 2 sheets are from the "Stella Rose - Hattie" paper pad.
The grey piece has a scrap piece of grosgrain ribbon glued across it.
The sentiment is computer generated.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges...

Passion for Promarkers - celebrations
I Love Promarkers - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenges - anything goes
MMCS challenges - anything goes
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Secret Crafter - anything goes

So that's it from me for 2011, i'll be back next year ;)
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all, I hope 2012 is a brilliant year for you.
Thank you for visiting.
Love, Jo xx
