Cheers to a New Year (and an Announcement!)

Hi everyone!  Happy New Year!!

Here at My Favorite Things, we have so many fun things planned for 2013.  And to kick the year off with a bang, we’re adding a couple of amazingly talented ladies to our team!  I couldn’t be more excited, and I’m sure you will be as well! I’m not spilling the beans here though.  You’ll have to check out the “official” announcement on the MFT Blog.  Sending out a big warm, squishy welcome to both!  ♥  ♥

My card for today uses Martinis on Me from the à la modes line.  She’s so appropriate for a New Years card, don’t you think?  🙂

After coloring with Copics, I added some sparkle to her dress and shoes using a clear Spica glitter pen.  The rhinestone border is from Michaels.  My image panel was not quite square so I simply nipped out one rhinestone from the top and bottom for a perfect fit.

The sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental about New Beginnings, was stamped onto a Sentiment Strip, then layered upon a second red die-cut strip.  To create the frayed end, I simply die-cut a second red strip (one end only) and cut into the flag end with sharp scissors.  I popped the sentiment strip up on foam tape, removing the few rhinestones from beneath the left edge so the strip would lie flat.

On the inside, I stamped the remainder of the sentiment and then the partial image in Wild Cherry ink.

Thanks for stopping by!  And may you and yours have a very healthy and HAPPY New Year!  Hugs!

p.s.  You can find my give-away HERE.  And the Copic give-away is HERE.
