Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everybody! Welcome 2012! I don't think there's a better way to bring in the new year than being in the scrap room making cards! It's hard to believe that we have begun another new year. Remember at the end of 1999 when everyone thought their computers were going to crash at midnight with the start of the new millenium?! These last 12 years have literally flown by. I wish everyone an awesome 2012 filled with peace, love, good health and prosperity!! XOXO

I used some fun techniques on this card - created a background with a tiny Celebrate stamp (with a floating frame around one of them), stippled linen folk art paint onto the left side, cut flourishes with my Cricut Expression and Wall Decor and More cartridge, and stamped the Happy New Year sentiment with a huge old-fashioned type dial alphabet stamp (remember them?!). And I just happened to have a bottle of champagne and two glasses in my embellishment stash and I coated the glasses with JudiKins diamond glaze!

I'm entering Happy New Year into the following challenges:
