Happy New Year!

 Good Morning.

As the New Year approaches so quickly, I decided to make a card that could be used for Christmas or for the New Year.  Just a fun collage style card using stamps from Kaisercraft and PTI.

I began by stamping the collage using Versamark ink and used some shiny silver embossing powder to help depict the look of fireworks, sparkle and shine.  It doesn't show as well in the photo but is really lovely IRL.  The stamps are a combination of stamps from a grunge set by PTI and a collage style stamp from Kaisercraft.
To continue with that theme, I die-cut a star from shiny red paper and backed the piece with more of the same shiny red then finally added a gem to the center of the star.
The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Adding my card to these challenges:

CAS on Sunday- NEW YEAR



Have a great week!

Supplies:  stamps- Kaisercraft, PTI, Penny Black/ silver eb powder/ heat tool/ die- Paper Smooches/ gem
