Happy new year card with Whiff of Joy images

Hi girls,

YES, it IS me again :). We received a very nice handmade Christmas card from a former colleague of Marco who moved back to the USA and his new wife who we haven't had the pleasure of meeting yet and since I had forgotten to send them a Christmas card I decided to make them a new years one. This also gave me the opportunity to stamp up these gorgeous stamps I had bought from A Whiff of Joy a couple of weeks ago. These are two seperate stamps (I'm sure you've seen them around already) and they are called Happy new year Ben and Nora with Rose.

Aren't they an adorable couple? I loved coloring them so much, especially her eyes are so fantastic to color! Of course both images were 3D paperpieced again and some parts were paperpieced using the design paper I used for the rest of the card (the dress, the rose and details of the suit). Design papers are by Kaisercraft La Chateau and came together with the matching cardstock in a card kit from Card Art a couple of months back. Now unfortunatelly Carmen has decided to stop with the card kits which is such a shame because she always made the most gorgeous combinations of papers and embellishments. The embellishments used on my card are flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and little pieces of a Magnolia Chandelier. The pearls and the rhinestones are also by Kaisercrafts. Here is a close up of the images:
And here is a picture of the inside with the sentiment:

Hope you like my card! I used the sketch by Kim for Whiff of Joy Challenges for the front of the card and so I'm entering this card for this weeks challenge. And this card also fits the new Paper Sundaes Challenge which is something new this is a New years card of course but the stamps are also new so I'd like to enter into that challenge as well.

Before I go I had a question for you girls (if you got to this point of the post that is ;) ). Do you guys see my list of followers on the right side of my blog? I can't see it on my blog or anybody elses for that matter. I can see my number of followers on the Dashboard but that's about it. I have been trying to find ways to solve this problem but all the information I find is way to complicated for me. Has anybody had this problem and knows an easy way to solve it? For you girls who have asked me to become a follower on your blogs... I have no idea how to... I don't see the button to become a follower in Windows Explorer or Firefox, it's very frustrating!
Well take care everybody!!!

  8. Wat een schitterende kaart! Ik zie je volgers aan de rechterkant en ook zie ik hoe veel volgers je hebt, dat zijn er op dit moment 347.

    Een tijdje geleden had ik dat op ieder blog waar ik al volger was, heeft vast met blogger te maken, want ik gebruik Firefox op mijn iMac. Een paar keer opnieuw in en uitloggen op blogger deed het voor mij, hoop dat dit voor jou ook werkt.
