My dream come true!!

Hi everyone and a huge welcome to any new visitors. I'm wishing you all a belated Happy New Year!
 It's already started off Absolutely Brilliantly for me as I've been asked to join CRAFTING by designs  as a Design Team member, YAY!!! This is a dream come true as I have seen other crafters join teams but have been reluctant to put my name forward to even try to get on a DT myself because of my MS. Doris, the lovely co-founder, has made me believe I can do it so here's looking forward to the fun!

The Challenge at CRAFTING by designs is Anything Goes
and the sponsors are

Prize - Choice of 2 digi stamps
Prize - $20 credit to store

Okay and on to today's card which is seriously feminine even for me :).
