HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I hope the new year has started off with all good things for each of you!!!  It sure has for me!! More about that later.....I'm pretty excited!!!

To celebrate, I created this card and I'm entering it in three challenges:

JUGS #117 Wild Card Using Felt

Card Patterens Sketch #146





The card base is 5x5 Gina K Pure Luxury White.  The first layer is Core'dinations run through the CB PolkaDot EF, and lightly sanded.  (The shade of aqua on those dots is from the sander....there was a little "Tumbled Glass" ink left and I hadn't cleaned it yet - good oops....I Iiked it!). The side was layered with soft yellow corrogated paper.  I distressed both layers with Antique Linen DI.  Behind the focal image is a circle cut with a Spellbinder Scalloped Circle on another piece of the same Core'dinations paper after being run through another CB folder (Musical Flouishes) and lightly sanded (cleaned the sander).  The image is a WIN from DenamiDesign stamps (love it) and the sentiment was stamped with "Celebrate in Style" by GKD.   I colored the dress with two Copic Markers E30 and YR30.  I added some dyed seam binding and some felt flowers I cut with a die from PTI.  The big button is from Webster's Pages.  Also used was a MS edger punch "Foot Lights" and Stickles "Tiara" for the necklace.  (thanks, Shirl) 

Thank you for stopping by and best wishes for all good things in 2012!!!
