Happy New Year!

Hi Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday shared with all of your family and friends!  Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday is over, I started brainstorming on creating a New Year's card.  If you're like me then you make cards for every holiday, and it is the next holiday, you know!?!? 

To me New Years means lots of elegance with glitz and glamor so I knew I wanted to create this card with black and silver and a bit of sparkle.  I used DRS Designs Shooting Star (509H) as my focal image and stamped it on gray cardstock.  I then stamped the shooting star again on aluminum foil and cut the star portion of the image out and adhered it to the original stamped image.  I used a black marker to color in the border around the star.  Some silver Stickles around the outside eadge of the foil star really made this star sparkle and shine!

Unfortunately, my brainstorming idea got a little out of hand when I realized I didn't have a "Happy New Year" sentiment to add to the front of my card.  I quickly improvised and used a portion of DRS Designs Blessed Christmas Greeting (525G) and in seconds I had a New Year's sentiment right in front of me! As you can see I split it up in to 2 parts and stamped it above and below the Shooting star as shown.  Don't be afraid to come up with new uses for your stamps just like I did!

I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Holiday, and may you be blessed with peace, love, joy, and good health in the New Year.
