Something New

Happy New Year everyone! This is my first post for 2018! I've had a very hectic Festive period and had not had much time to make any cards. This is my first card this year. I had to attend a funeral yesterday and ran out of Sympathy cards. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #253 and got out my new Distress Oxide inks for the background inking.
I'm adding this to
