BC132 - Happy New Year 2010!

HAPPY NEW YEAR - 2010!!!

Hopefully you had a great New Year's Eve and didn't "party to hearty" so you're able to enjoy the start of a new decade.

For today's Blogger Challenge the theme is of course New Years or Celebrations.  Since I did a celebration card for the 3CT (see post below) I decided to go with a New Years theme for this card.

My biggest problems is that I don't own any New Years themed stamps.  I did have this sentiment stamp from SU and then paired it up with a Confetti stamp out of a Birthday set by Inkadinkado.

I chose to use some old SU Designer paper that I still have hanging around in my paper drawers and based my colors off of the paper.  I "goofed" a little in that my background piece is Tempting Turquoise instead of Taken with Teal but it worked out okay.

So the basics are:  Stamps: SU and Inkadinkado
Card Stock: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Taken with Teal, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. Designer Paper - Retired SU- (Loves Me)
Ink: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip
Ribbon Originals - Retired-(Flirty)
Other:  Nestabilitie Rectangle Dies, Blossom Sprinkles(Annabelle Stamps),
Large Star Punch (SU), Small Star Punch (source unknown) and Cotton Candy Pink Glitter (Art Institute).

Looking forward to sharing with you in the coming New Year.  -  Thanks again for visiting my blog this past year.
