Cheers to a New Year!

Well 2013 is finally here! I couldn't think of a more fun way to spend my New Years Day than STAMPING! Hubby was at the driving range, so I headed up to the stamp room to have some fun of my own:)

I've been wanting to create something for this month's Guest Designer contest at MFT so that's what I started with. This month, the challenge is a sketch! Hey, you know me, I do love a good sketch;)

Here's my card, made with some pretty fitting stamps for the New Year;)

I inked up my beloved Martini's on Me a la Mode. I just love her and her giant martini glass:) I thought the sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental about New Beginnings, was just PERFECT for this card! That Oprah is a wise lady:)

Close up of the coloring--

You can also see I stamped a flourish along the edges of the image, just to add some fun! I saw Inge do this and thought it was a great idea:) I got this Flourish from the Finishing Flourishes set. I stamped off a couple times for a shadow effect. 
The papers I used are white, black, Paver Red, and the honeycomb pattern from some MME paper. I forget which line.  I also used some Paver Red ribbon and black buttons!

Well that's it from me for the day, I hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year!

Don't know why the sketch picture doesn't show up for me. I love your card though. I can see why you love that stamp with the big glass. The sentiment is perfect too for the first day of the New Year. Happy New Year and look forward to seeing what cards you come up with during 2013.
