Happy New Year 2011!!

I originally meant to post this at midnight, but I got distracted by watching the ball drop on tv and watching The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block perform together!!...Instantly brought 6th grade memories flooding! Plus our neighbors were shooting off M80's, exciting but frightening! We also let the boys stay up last night to watch the countdown...their first time, which was exciting for them!

But anyways I was thinking...what a better way to start off the New Year of creating than with a New Year's card?! Mo just released the most adorable New Year's image the other day and I just had to have it!

Some close ups:
And I didn't do much with the inside on this one, but the simple look suits the card...

PAPERS: Parchment kraft, steel blue, black, white and lime green cardstock, Black glitter cardstock is from "Best Ocassions".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The adorable image is a digi stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with PrismaColor Pencils and a Gamsol technique was used.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Lime green organza ribbon, champagne "Dew Drops", and a beautiful organza flower with a sweet white faux pearl made by "ABespokeTouch" on Etsy.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with a metallic sandy color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image and flower for even more sparkle!
I used the awesome sketch from: Mojo Monday #171

And this weeks color challenge sketch from: Color Q

The sketch was so much fun to use and I just might use it again and the colors from Color Q worked beautifully together!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe night and I wish everyone a Happy 2011!!
