A leafy Happy New Year-it's just a fraction...

Some catching up with last month's challenges at 365 cards,so I took day 277 -just a fraction. at first, I didn't like this challenge at all. I just couldn't find the
right image I'd like to take for this challenge, and so I gave up. I guess my mojo waited for the right moment to reveal, and today it was that moment (actually - last night...( I took the image from simple doodles, its one of the freebies there, among lovely others.
I love the frame, I think it adds a lot to the image, more than just matting the image. I have a few die cuts frames and everytime I use them, I see how good it works. I inked it a little with a brown ink, and also did it with a blue ink to the sentiment.
I must say that I wouldn't go for this color combo first place, but I do love what came out.
and 'this one goes out to the one I love', who loves so much the orange color :)
the challenges this card goes for are:
just a frcation - day 277 at 365 cards
sketch - #50 sweet sunday sketches; #42 2sketches4u (without the color twist); #47 the pink elephant (2nd sketch)
color combo - design dollies; #28 spcc (the due day had passed, but no new challenge came and no winner was announced, so I'm taking it as a current challenge :)
button it! - #6 pixie cottage (I liked using a button for an "O").
favirite or 2009 - #11 crafty cardmakers
new beginings - #14 digital ink co (silver on the orange pp, and it also glitters,ribbon, distressing on the frame and the sentiment); #39 stamp with fun; #71 everybody art; #75 stampavie & more; doodle palace; stampin' for the weekend; #43 lili of the valley; #46 paperplay; daring cardmakers; #2 cards for men ; stamp something
new year - frosted designs
