Happy New Year's

If you follow my blog, you know I love the challenge of seeing how many challenges I can combine in one card. I had so much fun with this card and may have come close to setting a record for challenges met!

I used a different sketch for the front and right and left inside. For my images, I used digis from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored with copics, and added a layer of shimmer to the girl's dress with a spica marker. The clock has a layer of liquid glass over it to make it more realistic. I used a transparency printed in gold over the gray cardstock, to add a little bit more warmth.

When you open the card, the glitz continues! "2010" was stamped with Technique Tuesday stamps and embossed in silver. Swarovski crystals were glued onto the polkadots. One of the layers of cardstock was run through the cuttlebug with the Victoria folder.

On the right side, I again used an image from Sassy Studios, but instead of coloring the foil, I used a recycled piece of foil on the bottle. I added more of the transparency to tie everything together.

Ok.... So here is my challenge list!

Spoon Full of Sugar - front sketch
Get Sketchy - Trash to Treasure (foil)
One Stop Craft- Recycled (foil)
Everybody Art Challenge- New Year's
Cute Card Thursday - New Year's
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Winter Sparkle

Fresh Batch - sketch - inside left
Corrosive - New Year's Resolution
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - New Year's
Truly Scrumptious - sketch - inside right

ABC - "k" Kissing
