Let's Start Off Amazing

Sounds like a plan for 2015, right?  I hope this year is amazing.


I used some new stuff for today's card.  The "you" is from the same set of Thinlits I used on Tuesday's Happy New Year card, and this time I used the matching stamp set, which has alllll kinds of words to mix and match with the Hello You Thinlits.  You could even cut the "s" off the "thanks" die cut and have "thank you" in die cut letters.  But anyway, I also used the brand-new Birthday Bash specialty DSP (the Night of Navy swirly piece) along with some of the soon-to-be-gone All Is Calm silver patterned paper.  Kind of love that swirly pattern though, and even better there's another paper in the pack in that same pattern but with several colors.  I'm kind of totally crazy about patterned paper even though I haven't been scrapping nearly enough since we moved to Bama.

But anyway, I used the color challenge from Pals Paper Arts:


Love. It.  I kind of want an outfit in these colors.  Well, the silver could be jewelry, but a shirt in Night of Navy and Wisteria Wonder would be awesome.  My card took me a while to make because a.) I was talking to my mom on the phone and b.) I haven't made anything in over a week because we were out of town for Christmas, so it takes some time to get the mojo back ya know?

I also used the sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday:


Buuuuut I kind of supersized the layers.  Umm, at least all the sketch elements are there?

Anyway, I think I'm overdue for some veg time in front of the TV...the hubs and I have been watching old episodes of Grimm :)  Cheers peeps, and happy new year!
