2018 - Time To Soar!

 Happy 2018!  Like so many others, a new year brings thoughts of fresh starts. I have a few of those, too and my card today is a reminder to not just try, but to succeed! 

 Today is also a new start at STAMPlorations - it's the January CUTplorations challenge!   You can find all the details here

For my card, I used distress oxide inks to create the background which was inspired by the above photo.   I cut black cardstock using the Flutter Zen 1 Layering dies and then stamped the Soar-Say It Big Series sentiment.

Blessings for a happy, healthy New Year -- I hope you soar!


  1. Beautiful, Kathy. All the best for the new year. BTW, your link wasn't working but I've corrected it.

    Happy New Year. :)

  3. Fabulously inked background Kathy and great choice with that beautiful butterfly and sentiment.

  4. Kathy, that is a gorgeous card with the beautiful colorful background. Love the bold black butterfly and sentiment. The sequins give it some blink!
