Toasting The New Year

Hi everyone, Happy New Year!!! Did you make any new years resolutions? Mine is to make time to take care of myself. There are lots of things I want to do this year including eating healthier, exercising more, losing weight and spending more quality time with family and friends so I'm going to make time to do all of those things and more in 2012.   How about a toast to the new year... here's to 2012!!!

My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then Ballet Blue embossed using the D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder and Blush Blossom torn along one side. The image is a digital freebie called Toasting The New Year by Create With TLC. I printed the image on White Cardstock and highlighted some spots using copic markers. Next I distressed the edge of the card base and image using Memento Tuxedo Black. To embellish the card I added a huge button finished with a black grosgrain bow.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
