A Toast to 2011

Happy Challenge Day at Ooh La La. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday! Now that another Christmas has passed, so to has another year almost passed. Wow! Where has all the time gone?! Here we are knocking on the door of 2011! I cannot believe how quickly the year has flown by! In celebration of the New Year, we are asking you to celebrate with us, by creating a project with the theme, "A Toast to 2011."

My card, again, uses that wonderful Weaved Paper that everyone seems to love. The digi paper is from the Joyeux Noel CD by ooh La LaCreations. You can get this fantastic CD in Ooh La La Creations' shop, here. I love using these CD's because everything is pre-colored and it is so quick and easy to make a card! Just print, cut, glue, and embellish! No coloring required, which saves lots of time!

The image is a freebie from Beccy's Place. I knew it would be a perfect combination, paired with papers by Ooh La La, for a New Year's Card! As always, I've colored the image with Promarkers, and added glitz, glitter and sparkle with my clearstar gelly roll pen. The strawberries in the image didn't have the black dots, so I added those myself -- It just seemed to be missing something without those! The black and silver metallic ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated and punched using the oval and scalloped oval punches, by Stampin Up. Foam mounting tape has been used to attach the sentiment, for dimension.
