HAPPY NEW YEAR DAY, EVERYONE!!! Can you believe it is 2009?? Where did 2008 go....it went by way too fast!!! I hope you are all well and not feeling to bad after celebrating last night!! I made a " just becasue" card for today...just cause I love these stamps and paper!!

The Stamp Oasis image called Asian Spring was stamped twice on Whisper White cs with Memento Tuxedo Black. One was colored with copics. Bashful Blue was sponged over the image and then it was misted with Perfect Pearls and water to give it a little shimmer. The birds and sun from the other image were colored, cut out, and attached over the colored image with dimensionals. The Sentiment, which says " Sing in the rain, Dance in the Sun, Dream by the light of the moon" was also stamped with Memento Black and the edges were sponged with Bashful Blue. Both were layered with True Thyme and black and attached to the beautiful Basic Grey Periphery dp with dimensionals.







The scallops were punched from the Periphery paper with a Martha Stewart border punch . Ribbon from Flourishes, LLC and a fancy brad are the finishing touches.








I just love this paper and how the bird fills in the empty place in the design!!


Thanks sooo much for visiting today!!! I hope you have a wonderful January 1st!!
