Happy New Year!

Hello folks, sorry about the long absence. after returning from my long awaited trip to my birth place, Colima Mexico, the holidays kicked in. I had one week for Christmas shopping and plan a lovely Christmas dinner for visiting family..... who had time to make a card, right? lol.
 Now, that I have plans to ring in the new year, I found the some time to share with you my latest creation.

My card is inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. We have the choice between the circle or the square version... I went with the easier one I think.. the square version.
I've always thought of New Years as a black and white event so I went with it. I started off a plain white base and layered every piece with basic black. For the designer piece, I purchased a set from the local craft store from "Me & my big ideas". It contains different filigree designs and some with felt, which I thought helped me a lot with construction of the middle pieces because it prevented them from moving. Next, I cut four pieces of plain white card stock and embossed with Cuttlebug D'vine swirl folder. Then, cut another smaller piece and stamped balloons on one side using SU! Bitty Birthday, it was tricky but I made it work. And for the last piece, I used SU! A Brand New Year stamp and raised it with pop ups next to the balloons. And for an added touch, I used a sheer piece of ribbon.
 For inside the card, I just used another piece of the same designer paper and layered it with some basic black. For the sentiment in the middle I used SU! wonderful words set.
Well folks thanks again for stopping by and for being patient with me. I promise to post more creations frequently in the new coming year...
Also I'd like to extend a great big "Hello" to The U.K., Russia, South Korea, Germany, Australia, India, Canada, Greece, Malaysia, Indonesia, Trinidad and Tobago... Wow! Thank you so much for stopping by! And to all the my other visitors thanks for reading all my rants and complaints. Here's to you and all your love ones... May you have a fantastic New Year and best wishes!! Tootles
