You know that embarrassing moment when you realise you didn't send someone a Christmas card but they sent you one, exacerbated by the fact that your husband is meeting said person today for lunch…
I thought I'd make a new year card and what a perfect opportunity to use this new Sights of Sydney die my husband picked up for me when he was in Australia last month and I found under the tree on Christmas morning.
I die cut 2 for extra strength and triple embossed them with WOW! Midnight Dream. The firework(s) was from the Clearly Besotted Window Dressings Stamp set, which I embossed with various glitter embossing powders. Sorry the photo is out of focus, I was in a hurry to photograph it before my husband went off to lunch with it.
Lots of lovely challenges have started up again this week so I'll be entering it Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme this week is Start Afresh - use something brand new straight out of the packet, which this die is. I'll also be entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is New Something - apart from the new die, there is also the new year!
I'm also entering it in the current Inkspirational Challenge which has the following photo inspiration,
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC164 which has celebrations as the key word
and The Male Room Challenge #51, which has an Anything Goes theme.
Edited to include the challenge at Do-Al(l) Kreatives this month which has the theme Etwas Neues (Something New)
Edited to include the word challenge at Just Us Girls this week
