Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! A few days into the new year already, but I had a nice little holiday break from blogging. My fellow Drunken Stampers and I are back today, though, with a timely challenge: 

This is the final challenge in our current "person/place/thing" theme -- and that thing is New Year's Day. You can go with whatever inspires you about heading into the brand new year. 
I knew right away I wanted to make a New Year's card for my husb, so I went for a celebratory fireworks card... with Minnie Mouse.

I had planned to use Mickey on my card, since he's my favourite, but this Minnie stamp looked just too celebratory not to choose. The fireworks were a different challenge, since I don't have any fireworks stamps. I went through a bunch, and found a wedding bouquet with streamers -- cutting the clear stamp in half, I stamped the streamers twice, then added the flourishes and stars. Works for me at least! Some shiny silver paper to offset the black-on-black finished the card. 
Now it's your turn! Whether you want to illustrate this year's resolution, make a festive beverage card, or simply anything that inspires you about the start of 2014, come and join us! 

Supplies: white, Stampin' Up basic black & Recollections silver cardstock, Inkadinkado Disney, Basic Grey Forever, Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies & Studio G stamps, Versamark ink, Zing clear embossing powder
