Happy New Year

Happy New Year,  everyone.  Are you making any New Year's resolutions?  Personally, I am not,  I find that it does not take long for me to break them and it usually happens within the first week. ~Smile~

Every year I make New Year's cards to send to some of my friends that may not have gotten a Christmas card from me due to time running out before I could get enough cards made or put in the mail.   Unfortunately,  I did not get many of the Happy New Year cards made either.  Here is the New Year card I made to share with you today.

I started my card using black card stock and layering it with two different patterns of designer paper.  I used Super Gold Metallic card stock that was cut with a Spellbinders Teardrop Circles die.  The Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiment was stamped and layered on the top of the tear drop circle.

I used the Memory Box Over The Moon and Stars die to cut the large moon shape.  I placed silver and gold sequins over my card to give it a holiday appeal.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
