Happy New Year!

Greetings, Lynda Joy here.  I hope you had a healthy and happy holiday!  Now it's time to get ready for the new year.  I'm ringing in 2018 with lots of stars.....
I used the star ornament from the Christmas Ornaments stamp set .  The verse is from the Gifts of Christmas set.

I stamped several onto silver and gold card stock, and embossed with Judi-Kins Black Opal embossing powder.  This powder really is quite spectacular in real life, with intense fiery sparkles of color.
Close up to try to capture the sparkly powder when I zoom in on an angle.
I layered some gold card stock onto a silver A2 card.  For the black stripe down the left side, I inked a piece of scrap card stock with VersaMark, and added some of the black opal embossing powder, then trimmed it to the size I wanted and added it to the card.  I embossed the verse, and created the backdrop for that the same way I did the strip. 

I added all my pieces-parts to the card, some raised up and some directly.  A few rhinestones finish off my sparkly salute to the new year!
