Happy New Year 2012!

Hi!  So I think I was a bit more sick than I thought I was because I couldn't gather up enough energy to craft this past week.  I tried napping once the kids all went back to school but for some reason or other there were always appointments or interruptions that kept me from sleeping soundly.  But today I think I'm feeling okay.  At least okay enough to make a card.  I'm playing along with TGF's Friday Spy Day #14 and Some Odd Girl's Bling It Up! 

I wanted to make a New Year's card using TGF's Happy New Year Anya digi.  I erased the 2011 and hand wrote 2012 on her sash.  I actually colored her in twice because the first one I printed out seemed a bit large like she was going to trample over the buildings behind her.  Hehe.  So I shrunk her down a bit.  The diecut behind her is MFT's Skyline Border die.  I cut it twice and also pieced them together to line up how I wanted it.  I thought it was perfect for this New Year's fireworks card. 

I added lots of stickles to her sash and her head piece.  I tried to make fireworks with stickles too and added some clear and black rhinestones. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
