A Celebration Toast

Have you all recovered from the Christmas holidays, yet? Or still are you still celebrating? The DT at Shelly's Images are celebrating with a new image and new challenge, today! Our theme this week is to use Black, Silver +1 additional color and some bling, on your projects! A perfect challenge for those New Year's projects! We have made a couple changes to the challenge rules, though, that I wanted to mention. Starting today, challenges will close at noon (CST) on Wednesday, instead of Thursday night, like before. Also, we are now putting a limit on the amount of entries per person, to make it more fair. We're asking that you enter the challenge no more than 5 times, and as always, each entry must be a new and unique project with no backlinking. There, that wasn't so bad for a change of rules now was it?! We hope you'll still continue to play with us at Shelly's Images! We love having you join us!

And now, let me tell you about my project for today. I'm using this fabulous new image, Special Toast digi set, by Shelly's Images. (Remember that as today's featured image, its available today only for a special price in the store!) The image is colored with Promarkers. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the ribbons and rings, and a clear glaze pen to add shine to the glasses. The fun black and silver star paper is a scrap from my stash, and the silver metallic twine is also from my stash. The blinged flourishes are new (New stock! Used up my stash!) The sentiment says "A Gift For You) and is a peel off silver metallic sticker. I punched with image with circle and scalloped circle punches and mounted it with foam mounting tape for 3D effect.
