My 1st Sparkles DT card!

Good morning everyone, hope you're all having a great weekend so far!
Oooooh it's so cold and frosty here don't think i'll be going far today
Can't believe we're already halfway through January already!
It's been a great 1st month of the year for me with lots of exciting things happening - 
there's been lots of 1st's and today there's another one
 - my 1st DT card for Sparkles! And to make it even more special - my gorgeous daughter, Rebecca 
is coming on board, too and she's only 9! How cool is that?
So, here's my card
The theme this month is "new crafting goodies" so hopefully you lucky crafters will have been spoilt
at Christmas and have lots of new things to play with! I chose to use a new digi image and new embossing board and made this card for one of my son's, Cam, who will be 18 next month - as you can guess he's karate mad lol!
The prize for this month is a whopping £10 (exc p&p) spend at:
Don't forget we are a multi craft challenge blog so you can create anything you like as long as you
