TMS#126: Happy New Year

Good morning!  How was your Christmas?  I'm hoping you were able to spend some quality time with your loved ones!  I was lucky to be put "on call" for the day...even luckier when I didn't get called in!  I have to admit that I'm a bit sad to stop making Christmas cards...I really like making them!  I don't make a lot of New Year's cards, but I remembered this fun High Hopes stamp when I was planning my card for TMS this week....  Isn't Baby New Year the cutest?

The image is colored with pencils, then cut with Spellbinder's dies.  I used Bazill Bling for the card base...it has a lovely subtle shimmer...I decided to go monochromatic to keep the focus on the image.  I also flipped the sketch.  I'm just realizing that I didn't use any embellishments of this card!  I don't think it needs any....

Image: High Hopes
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Bazzill Bling
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos
I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has done with this sketch!  You can take a peek at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  I would love to see what YOU come up with too!

Thanks for stopping by!
