Happy New Year's Eve!

Hello, and a very happy new year to all of you! Today I made time to play along with the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #153. I used SU!'s Serene Silhouettes for the image, coloring it with markers before stamping. The turquoise panel was done with a CB ef, and the horizontal panels were done with a MB woodland branch die. The sentiment was done with a SU! tiny tags stamp and I added a very small red gemstone to the flower center just for fun.

Thanks to all of you for visiting my blog this past year! I really do appreciate your taking the time from your busy day to stop in and especially to leave your thoughts. I wouldn't be doing this without all of you :)

Have a safe, happy, and healthy New Year and be sure to have fun ringing in 2013!!

Carol,

This is gorgeous! Love the turquoise, as well as the open-ness of the card. Also love how the branches and leaves repeat throughout the elements.

So pretty...

Fantastic card, Carol! Love that tiny touch of red on here and the aqua color! Aqua must be the up and coming color this year - I just made a card yesterday using it. Way too cloudy to take a photo though.

I know I've said it many times but here I go again - you have the neatest toys! What an awesome job this week! I love how you used the branches for the stripes and the turquoise is just the perfect color choice. Nice job! (as usual)....
