SPARKS Challenge: Welcome 2014!

Hello friends!

Is is too early for New Year's cards?  I hope not because I made one this week to play along with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  This week's challenge was to create a card based on a Designer's Draft sketch, and here is my take:

First I covered a kraft card base with some fun striped cardstock. I cut a panel of cream cardstock and stamped 2014 from the Digits set and then topped it with "welcome" from Simply Said in red ink. 

I stamped a strip of red cardstock with the polka dots from Geo-Graphic before rounding the corners and adhering the panel to the card with a bit of foam tape.  A strip of washi tape, a banner and a button with a glitzy center finish off the card. 

Here is a look at this week's inspiration sketch. 

That's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
