Happy New Year 2011!




Soooo, I said in my last post that I found this adorable Happy New Year Anya image over at Splendid Stamping With the Greeting Farm and I couldn't help but make a card with her. Funny though, I don't give out New Year's cards so she might just be a keeper. I gave myself an extra push today and forced myself to use more embellishments than normal. They intimidate me I guess - I tend to keep things minimal, partly because I like the minimal look, but also out of a fear of messing it up! That being said, I'm glad I went with it because I love how this turned out!! I used Basic Grey Olivia paper and distressed EVERYTHING just slightly with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and an edge distresser on the dp. I even used the distess ink on the ribbon and the flowers! And then came the bling!! I used a clear Atyou Spica pen on the Happy New Year and the 2011 on her sash; Diamond Stickles on her earings, shoes and under her dress; and the rhinestone flourish (which by the way was courtesy of Monique's blog candy I won a while back). Believe it or not, the ribbon was from a pair of pj's that I got as a gift. They were wrapped in a bundle with the ribbon, and of course I kept it!! Something else I tried new today was Anya's hair. I used a different technique and I'm thrilled with how that turned out too!!

I used Sketch #134 over at Friday's Sketchers and I'm also entering this for The Crafty Pad's Challenge #102 Anything Goes.
