Happy New Year!! I am admittedly a bit hungover today, oy, I am getting old! ;) We had some friends over last night, we have been celebrating New Year's Eve with them, nearly every year since before we had kids, and now we have 5 kids between our 2 families. Last year, Craig had cancer and had just finished chemotherapy, so this year was a really nice celebration now that he is doing much better :)
I decided to try a new challenge, since I am feeling like trying new things. This is for Our Creative Corner. The theme is "bright and happy new year" and here's the palette:
Fun colors, huh? And even though it wasn't part of the palette, I really was digging on the black in the photo. These are not colors I use often (particularly together!) but I thought it would be a nice way to start out the New Year, new colors, uninked stamps & something that's a bit of a departure from my usual style. I made this card for my goddaughter, who will be 5 in a few weeks.
Keeping in mind that it was for a little girl is why I added all the gems and the resin flower. I stamped the main image down twice, once on yellow and once on purple, and I paper pieced the center of the image. I stamped it down on yellow again and punched the 5 out with a heart punch. I adhered that and added some MORE gems. The green panel was stamped with the polka dot background stamp and heat embossed with black EP. I die cut the bottom of that panel.
Well, that is it for me today, HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
