"Happy New Year Everyone"

This is my first card for 2011 and I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year, and hope that you arnt suffering with any hangovers and that you enjoyed seeing it in, we spent a very quiet evening watching the TV and listening to all the fireworks that the locals let of, sorry to say we are getting rather boring in our old age.
This image is one of Mo's and its called "Reach for the Stars" you will find it here in Mo's Digital Pencil Shop, Ive created a 7"x 7" card this time and used the papers from Kay Millers "High Seas" and with four of her papers I wanted the feeling of sea and sky, and the two strips through the middle are to give the sense of sand and grass, I used one of my border punches along both edges and wrapped a ribbon around the middle and tied a bow.
The mounted image was then positioned to the left and my sentiment which is one of the Just-Rite stamps at the top in the position of a sun. To finish of Ive stuck a few stars down the right hand side.
I want to remind you that Donna has four new sets of Digi Papers that are to be released tomorrow, if you scroll down you will find them and the link to her webshop, the papers are gorgeous.
