Completely Christmas challenge 1 of 2015

This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 1 of 2015: anything goes with a twist ... add a new year resolution. Please click on the link to see the designs by the rest of the team and join in with your entries.

When I thought about new year resolutions, the one thing at the forefront of my mind is that I need to lose weight, but I don't want to give up dark chocolate, so this prompted me to use Bugaboo Stamps 'Mildred exercise - balance diet' (Bugaboo Stamps are sponsoring the challenge), hence this card, with the sentiments created digitally to go with the image, printed out and coloured with spectrum noir pens and mounted on to a dark brown card blank ( mmm just like dark chocolate).

This is also for:
