Cupcake Crafts Callenge #71

I made this card for Cupcake Crafts Challenge where the theme was "A Time for Celebration". I decided to try a more mannish card for this one so no fancy flowers today. (I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms). The image is Magnolia's "Guitar Edwin" coloured using Copic Ciaos. The papers are all from GCD's "No Worries 48 sheet paper collection" and the embellishments are from my stash. This is a bit more basic than my normal offering but I hope you still like it. Perhaps you will have a minute to spare to leave me a comment to let me know what you think. I would love it if you did because I get so much from them.
Hoping you have a great day with productive crafting and do have a very Happy and Prosperous New Year when it comes.

    Happy New Year and best wishes for 2010!!
