A Happy New Year Card!

Hello, hello, hello!  Happy Monday to you!  I was able to squeeze in some crafty time during the kids' naps yesterday ( and in between the massive cleaning downstairs, even thought it looks like I haven't touched a thing, pffft!) to play along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge: Anything Goes... so hoping that this isn't my last card ever for this challenge!  And I am also playing along with the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge: Happy New Year!

Time: 9 min. 58 secs. ( totally cutting it close! )

Patterned Paper: Studio Calico
Stamps: (cityscape) Fresh Squeezed Stamps, (sentiment) Simon Says Stamp
Ink: Memento
Distress Ink Dabber
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh

Tips: I covered up the "And a" part of the sentiment with washi tape each time I inked it up and removed the washi tape before stamping it.  My intention was to have more of the sentiment on the various color strips, but with being on a time crunch I was only able to get 3 in... I think it worked out will this way!

I will also be entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Bling it On!

Thanks for stopping by and check back maybe later today for a countdown of some of my favorites for 2013!
Happy Crafting!

Cool card! I can't believe you made it in under ten minutes. I love the sequins in the sky above the cityscape. I think that 3x was the perfect number of times to stamp the sentiment--it makes a nice visual triangle.

Happy (almost) New Year to you!
