Weaving Card

Hi all
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. 
Here is my first card of the year using Sue Wilson Intermediate die, which I purchased just before Christmas.

This is my first attempt at using this die and I must say I am quite pleased with the result.
I framed the weave with SW noble die collection and made a flower with Spellbinders cinch and go flowers, which I then sugared in Glitterbitz. 
I was lucky enough to receive Tim Holtz stamping platform for Christmas - I have yet to use it, I hope to have some time at the weekend.
I have had my knitting needles out the last few weeks, which haven't seen the light of day for over 10 years lol.. my sister in law has me helping her knitting bonding squares for the local hospital. I must say I am really enjoying it and had forgotten how much like to knit. My daughter has already asked me to make a tea cosy for her..  Once it is completed I will show a picture of it.. but I have to start it first hopefully it will be this month.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafting from the Heart - #189 ATG
Allsorts -#449 Something New
Moving along with the times #62 Flowers
Dream valley challenge #170 ATG
