Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. It's New Years Eve 2013. Can you believe it is the final day of 2013?
This year went by so quickly that I am almost not sure where it went. A blogger friend of time encouraged me to do a review of the year to see what I have accomplished. It will probably be a lot more than what I think. So I am going to do that as well as do a review of my favorite cards for 2013. So stop by tomorrow for the card review.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess for cc459 and I chose the color palette of black, silver and white. I decided to make a New Years card. I send these out as well as Christmas cards. This is a special one for a stamping friend of mine.
My layout is this week’s MojoMonday sketch #326. We had a round or square option and I chose to make a 4 1/2" square.
My background paper is a silver metallic textured that I found in my stash. I layered it over some Stampin-Up silver cardstock. The striped layer is some paper from BoBunny and to this layer I added a border die cut from Verve. The border die seemed to fit my celebration card.
The sentiment layer is a stamp from MFT. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig for placement on 2 lines. I stamped the remainder of the sentiment on the inside.
It reads: and another chance for us to get it right.
I cut a flag pennant from a Spellbinders die in silver. The 2014 are black alphabet stickers from my stash.
Completed the card with some licorice bakers twine and used some of the circles from the border die on the sentiment panel.
Well that's it for me for this post and this year. So until next time.......God bless.
