Happy New Year

Maggie is the hostess of the Challenge Your Stash group this month. Her theme encouraged us to make a New Year's card without alcohol.

You might remember, the Challenge Your Stash premise is this - we cannot purchase anything in order to make the card.

Okay... no alcohol is not a problem. I don't drink and therefore I do not have any alcohol related stamps. However... the theme was still a challenge for me, since I also apparently don't celebrate New Years. LOL!

In a quick perusal of my stamp inventory (in Evernote - I love Love LOVE Evernote!) I only found one stamp set labeled New Year. It's a Taylored Expressions stamp set called Light Up the Night. Since it is all I had (and I can't purchase anything) I used it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Supplies Used

Stamp Set: Taylored Expressions Light Up the Night stamped with Brilliance Inks (Lady But Red, Mediterranean Blue, Sunflower Yellow, and Thyme)

Papers: Recollections Blue, Red, and White CS and DP from my scrap file

Embellishments: Buttons from an unknown vendor

Such a fun card ~ the fireworks are a perfect way to showcase a celebration! I saw several firework cards on Pinterest, alas, my stash contains none - so lucky you to have at least one. Gorgeous card!

I think that stamp set can be used for more than New Years but it certainly fits. Great card! Love the color combo!

What a great interpretation of the challenge Jeanette, and I love the result.

Although there were police lining the entrances to the beach, we still saw fireworks that looked just like yours!! Great New Year's design, Jeanette!
