ColourQ #65 & WMSC #28

Saturday, January 1, 2011

Welcome to 2011!  I have a fun, little, New Year card, for you all, today, to start us out right.
I started this card by machine stitching a black-threaded, straight-stitch frame around the outside edges of a piece of black, polka dot, patterned paper, just before adhering it to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face.  I, then, adhered a punched, across its bottom edge, strip of olive, text, patterned paper, just below horizontal center, over both, existing layers, before piecing together the martini glass from hand-cut vellum, which had been pierced with an embellished, stick pin, and Basic Gray cardstock.
A crinkled, white, seam binding ribbon was, then, wrapped, around the card face, just above the punched, patterned paper...
and anchored in a dressy bow, embellished with a black, Vintage-Style button, laced with Baker's Twine, and a Cricut-cut, from Very Vanilla cardstock, distressed, with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, and stamped, in Basic Gray ink, "HAPPY NEW YEAR" sentiment.
This card was inspired by ColourQ's Challenge #65...
and Waltzingmouse's Sketch Challenge #28.
Thanks for peeking in!  Have a fantastic Saturday, and an even better 2011, ya'll!  Oh!  And I almost forgot!  Ick!  The above card was featured on CREATE: for Paige's New Year Cards Challenge.  Yippeee!  LOVE for you all to run check it out!  Thanks, as always, Paige!  Just lovin' playing along!
