Celebrate 2019!

Hi there!!! I hope that 2019 has been treating you well so far! 🙂  This is my first inspiration post for the current challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group.  Our first theme of the year is “New Beginnings”  – this can be New Year, New Baby, New Home…..etc.  or even new crafty stash 🙂  The theme on the challenge blog is the same, so you can double your chances to win!  I went with a New Year card for my project.  I used the New Year Celebration image from Ching-Chou’s Etsy store.  I colored her up with my Copics, using a white gel pen for a few accents, then matted her in black and green.

I used my least favorite color on this card…..peach!!  I embossed the background paper with a folder that reminded me of fireworks, then matted it in the same colors as the image.  I die cut the sentiment and butterfly out, but no matter where I tried to place the numbers for the year, it looked dumb, so I left them off.  I  balanced things off with some green gems.
