Happy New Year to everyone - and a Thank You card

Here's my last card to blog for 2010, a Thank You card.  I'd like to say something clever  about 2010 but I'm all out of clever sayings, so I will just remind you that our Challenge at Phindy's Place is now open to all-comers and the Thank You Challenge runs for two weeks, until 7 January.  Oh, and I'd also like to wish everyone a healthy, happy New Year!  I've stuck with a caramel and chocolate colourscheme for my card, do you think I've overindulged on the choccies over Christmas LOL?

The image is part of It's All Yours, a fun image from Phindy.  I've coloured it with Copics and mounted it onto a  gold pearlised circle that is stitched to a bronze pearlised square.  The DP is from a Bearly Mine CD called Designer Extreme Vol III and the sentiment is Craftwork Cards.  The circle and the DP are stitched on my sewing machine.  I should tell you that my hamster is far lower than I intended; I stamped Thank You onto the circle so that it was the centre of the card and all the stitching was shown off.  But the Versafine ink didn't set on the cardstock and when I stitched it the sentiment smudged under the sewing machine.  Grr!  Oh well, at least it was able to be rescued with a change of plan.
My card is for the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Thank You
Papertake Weekly - be thankful
CD Sunday Challenge - in stitches
Woodware Challenge - anything goes
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Thank You
