Happy New Year's!!!


Hi everyone, Happy New Year's!!!  This is a quick card I put together for New Year's.  I was thinking of those pretty face mask's with feathers and gems that you'd wear to a masked ball, at least in the movies they do, LOL!  My sewing machine was on the fritz when I did the stitching so it looks a bit of a mess but I wasn't about to start all over again.  The image used on today's card is the Toasting The New Year digital stamp by Create with TLC.
