Shiny, sparkly wishes for 'ABC' Challenges - Happy New Year
'ABC' Challenges! The challenge this week at 'ABC' Challenges is to make a card with something sparkly or shiny on it. My card is reflective of a celebration of a shiny New Year. For me, 2012 felt like it contained more struggles than joys. But as we all know, we have to take the good with the bad. I choose to believe that 2013 is going to be far better than 2012 and will be full of blessings! So my glass is more than half-full and I'm excited to see what the New Year will bring. How will you celebrate 2013? Do you make resolutions? What wonderful things will you have to be thankful for this next year? Hope there are lots for you! The champagne bottle in my card is made from the Apothecary Accents Sizzix Framelit die. I then added the top by hand-cutting the bottle neck and putting a band of brushed gold around the top to represent the label around the bottle. The "Celebrate" sentiment (embossed with gold powder) is a sneak peek from a stamp set that will be coming out soon in the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration catalog. Please pop on over to the 'ABC' Challenges site and see what the rest of the fabulous DT has prepared for your inspiration. I hope you will decide to share your sparkly/shiny card with us :o) Til next time...Hugs and Happy crafting.
