Happy New Year!!!

Here's my entry for this week's TCP Tuesday challenge. The challenge was to make something "new". It could be a New Year's card, use new stamps, layout, etc. I decided I would go with a New Year's card, using paper and stamps that I havn't used before, so I guess they are "new" too!

This Heidi Grace DP was in a card kit I received in a swap; I really liked it, so when I saw a pack of the paper on sale at JoAnns I bought it...a long time ago! I hadn't opened the pack until today and I really like the papers; I think they are my new favorites! I was able to use 5 of the DPs on this card.

I stamped 2 extra balloons, paper pieced them and added them to the image. I also added some M.S. glitter to the hat, horn, and champagne bubbles. I also used some gorgeous black satin ribbon I found in my stash and some black Swarovski flatback crystals. I used the "Metro" QuicKutz alphabet for the numbers.

Adorable! Awesome DP and the balloons are perfect for paper piecing. Wonderful sentiment block for the theme, too.
