A Birthday Card with Bright Colors

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I had a friend ask me to make a birthday card recently, and for this one I used some punched circles made from scraps. I used a glue stick to adhere them to the black card stock and then ran it through the Big Kick with a square lattice embossing folder. I matted the panel with some green galore card stock and added some satin ribbon in a matching color. The sentiment is a digi from SNSS. It was pretty quick and easy to make, and yet I love the festive look of it.
Speaking of festive, I wish everyone a happy New Year's eve celebration, whether you're going out to party or spending a quiet evening at home. Every year I fight sleep to stay up and watch the ball drop in Times Square NYC, and then wonder why I tried so hard to stay up and watch it? It's the same thing every year, KWIM? LOL Nothing changes at all, except I have to remember to write the new year on my checks in January :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!

Carol, I love each and every one of your cards. I admire you and your talent so very much. I treasure your friendship and look forward to another year of your creations and your wonderful friendship. Your newest birthday card here is so nice, bright and cheery. Love how it came out. Another great job. Happy New Year! I'm not sure I'll even make the ball dropping. I usually don't.
Hugs, Donna
