Let's Celebrate!

Friday, January 1, 2016


 It's time to celebrate!  Not only New Year's, but we also have 5 family members' birthdays we're celebrating in January!  

My card was made with this beautiful set I just bought from Stamplorations (Party Dresses) which I heat embossed with gold and watercolored.  The background is also watercoloring.  The word is from Papertrey Ink.


Thanks so much to these challenges for the inspiration:


I chose the Sparkles, Embossing, New line
