Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!

In two days it will be the Chinese New Year (Year of the Dragon!) and I thought it would be fun to make a Happy New Year card for one of my friends and used the Happy new Year A La Carte from Taylored Expressions to create this card.

I stamped the sentiment and then cut it out using the Frame It Up 1 die from Taylored Dies and then created a mat layer by tracing the outside of the die on a piece of kraft card stock. I used the Pennant Border Dies from Taylored Expressions to create a little celebratory border on top and then added some clear polka dot ribbon around the center of the card base and then put the sentiment onto of it. 

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket: Salt Air and Choice Snow White card stock from Taylored Expressions
StampsHappy New Year A La Carte from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Memento Ink Tuxedo Black and copics
Accessories: liquid pearls, Frame it Up 1 die and Pennant Border from Taylored Expressions, ribbon from stash, bling and dimensionals. 

I don't know about you, but all of my New Year's resolutions have been broken and I am excited to try again with the Chinese New Year to have my resolutions last longer than three days :) lol! Hope that you have are having a beautiful weekend and have a beautiful new start to the Year of the Dragon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
