Happy New Year

Happy New Year

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to devote more time to making cards (and posting them here, of course). I started the year off well, with this New Year’s card to all of you. Hope 2011 will be a great one for you!

The layout I used is Mojo Monday sketch 171. I created my own “fireworks” background by stamping and silver-embossing stars from the Starstruck set on silver card stock. The vintage lace border of the white square panel was enhanced by the teal glitter sheet that I adhered behind it.

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy New Year!

Stamps: Merry Wishes, Starstruck (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Basic Black, Brushed Silver (SU!); Teal Glitter Sheet (Petaloo); White (
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, VersaMark (Tsukineko)
