First Card of 2013

Now that I am back in my wee crafting corner in 'the Sandpit', surrounded by all my crafting stuff, I settled down to make the first card of 2013. A birthday card for my favourite aunt and a fellow cardmaker.
I think I must have left my mojo back in Scotland and it is coming out 'the Sandpit' by camel caravan, so ended up doing something fairly simply.  Just before I headed back home in September 2012 I had ordered some new goodies from Cropstop - Stamping Gear from Inkadinkadoo, so thought I would have a little play.  It took a few attempts to get a design that I was happy with - think it is going to take a bit of trial and error to make the most of Stamping Gear.
