New Year's inspiration for getting organised

Happy New Year!  Today I'm here to share with you a fun planner project.  So the new year is here, and I'm getting myself organised!  I would like to keep myself inspired and want to have some little prompts and words of focus for the year ahead.  Although I haven't yet created my 'wish list' - still thinking on those, my card is ready to go and i'll add some wishes using a typewriter and then cut them into strips before adding to the card.

I created it to be able to be affixed to any part of the planner with a bulldog clip.  This will enable it to move with the dates and always be a great visual memory enabling me to keep focus on achieving those 'wishes'

To create the background on my card which you could use this technique on any project you desire... maybe a scrapbook page or a card or even an Art Journal page.

I started out with the die and some Shimmerz Aqua huez.  I took 2 pieces of white cardstock and die cut one, the other forming the base of my card.  

I then used the die cut as a stencil an painted the colour through onto the card with the Little Boy Blue at the top and the Grey Matter at the bottom, blending them in the middle.

Doing this I found I had color on my die cut, I added a little more and then stamped that onto some cardstock for another project 

As you can see it quickly came together!  Then adhering all the elements together with the following paper and embellishments it came together rather quickly.

I also added an additional piece of the pattern paper as a base for the white cardstock cutting it slightly larger to achieve a decorative boarder around the card.  You can check out how the decorative side of the card came together over on the 'Ruby Rock-It' blog HERE
