Hello New Year

Good morning and Happy Monday!

Today, I am playing along with the Simon Say's Stamp Wednesday Stamp Challenge.   The theme for this week is Something New.  I used a new stamp set from Avery Elle called Circle It and made a card to say "hello" to the new year.

I stamped the circles from Circle It in a random pattern with few shades of Hero Arts ink (Pale Tomato, Bubblegum Pink, Butter Bar and Soft Pool)  The black dots were stamped with my trusty Versafine Onyx Black ink.   

I used my Silhoutte Portrait to cut the "hello new year" sentiment from Gold Foil cardstock (Worldwin Papers). I used a glue pen to adhere the sentiment to the stamped panel and matted it with more gold foil cardstock.

Finally, I mounted the matted panel to a black cardstock base. Maybe it's because I like shiny objects, but I really love how the gold sentiment looks on this card. Anyone else smitten with the gold trend lately? 

Well that's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
