Happy New Year!!!!

This is the card I made for my New Year's card this year. I think it's pretty sweet and it was very easy, too. I know you can't really tell from the photo, but the top layer of blue is a sparkly blue that I got on the clearance rack at a paper supply store. Just perfect. AND... the bonus is that is is just perfect for this week's challenge over on the Friday Mashup (http://www.fridaymashup.com/2011/12/fm39-heres-to-shiny-new-year.html). The challenge is to add some sparkles/bling to a card or have a New Year's card or mash it up and do both. The crazy cool part of this card is that I made it before I saw the challenge... wow... are we connected or what? I started with a base of white. Then I put the sparkly blue layer on that I punched out with a snowflake, but I saved it and glued it inside! I also used a silver ribbon (from another clearance bin), and then I used Night of Navy to stamp the sentiment "Happy New Year" on a white scrap, punched it out with the word window, put in on a navy modern label punch and popped that up on top of the ribbon.

Thanks for looking...

What a great way to use that snowflake you punched out from the top layer! They say great minds think alike you know. I bet that shimmer paper is gorgeous in real life. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.

Sigh...I wish we could expect some snowflakes with the new year. I love the sparkly blue paper and beautiful simplicity of this one. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup!
