New Year Sparkle

Good Morning!  Since I just posted about the start up of my birthday club yesterday I thought it was only fitting that I post a birthday card today.  If you would like to join my birthday club you can read more about it here in yesterday's post.

I also made this card for this week's ABC blog challenge and the challenge this week is 'New Year Sparkle'.  We were to create any card using anything that sparkles and I decided to use rhinestone gems.  It's hard to see in my photo so I wanted to point out that my gems are just below my sentiment.

I first cut a die shape using the label collection framelit and then I stamped a flower and two small green stems in the lower right corner.  Then I stamped the sentiment using chocolate chip ink towards the left side.

The white card stock towards the bottom of my card was stamped using the same flower stamp as on my sentiment layer and the same baja blue ink.  The chocolate chip card stock was punched using the dotted scalloped ribbon border punch and then the background towards the top of my card was dry embossed using the square lattice embossing folder.

The only other embellishment I added was the twine.  I was trying to keep my card more flat for mailing.

I hope you'll stop on by our ABC challenge blog this week!  I wish you and  your family a wonderful Happy New Year!  Have a great rest of the day!
