Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  Well 2013 is here.  I hope to get in a lot of crafting again this year.  How about you?  Today, we have a brand new challenge from Twisted Tuesday.  This is the first challenge for the year and it is a Sketch Challenge.  THE TWIST ~ What's a party without confetti or streamers? Use something on your creation that reminds you of one (or both) of these party favorites.  Here is the sketch.


I used an older digi from Saturated Canary, but I thought she looked like she could be celebrating the new year.  This is Ellie's Birthday.  And even though it is a birthday stamp, I thought it worked pretty good for New Year's too. 

Cardstock - CS is SU Cherry Cobbler and the DP is from my scrap stash
Stamps - Saturated Canary and SU Teeny Tiny Wishes
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Oval and Scallop Oval
Punches - Punch Bunch Stars in 2 sizes and SU Oval and Scallop Oval
Ric Rack - from my ribbon stash
Glitter - Crystal Stickles
Also used Glossy Accents on the balloons

Copic Markers:
Skin - E000, E00, E01, B24, R20
Hair - E50, E51, E53
Clothes - R27, R29, YR21, YR23, C1, C2
Balloons and Hat - R27, R29, YR, 21, YR23, R81, R83, BG72

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge - #34 - Party Time!

Digi Makeover Challenge - #69 - Anything Goes

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - #152 - Anything Goes

Marker Pop Challenge - #13 - Deep Dark Colors

Now hop on over to the Twisted Tuesday Challenge blog to check out what the rest of the design team has made.  Thanks for dropping by and have a blessed day.
