Happy New Year

So, is it too late to celebrate the new year?  Nah... we're good.

To be honest, I found this in my drafts folder!  What the heck?!  You mean I have to hit the Publish button when I'm finished writing up a post?  Haha!

I was inspired by Julie Ebersole's card HERE and created a simple New Year's card with similar elements.

I started with a piece of cardstock that is a blush pink / peach color.  It was from a multi-pack that I received from a company that is no longer in business (my apologies, since I don't recall what it's name really is).

Overall, this was a super simple card, but the elements of gold are just amazing!  I adore the Delicata gold ink!

The images do not do any justice to the shimmer.  I embossed the champagne glasses in gold, colored with my R20 Copic marker, added clear Wink of Stella and fussy cut.  I covered with Glossy Accents and allowed to dry.  In most cases, I take the time to remove all the bubbles when I add Glossy Accents... this time, I let them stay.  They add to the champagne effect!

Thanks for stopping by - and thank you for the inspiration, Julie!
