Cheerful New Year!

First of all, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season this year - I know I did.

Okay, so this new photo software of mine is TERRIBLE, but I couldn't make this card without posting a pic for you on this lovely New Years Day! After another day at home in relaxation (incidentally, this the last day of my vacation - it's back to the grind after this), I was able to create something else I'm pretty happy about. Here it is:

I am going to re-do these last two photos because they just aren't showing up right, but this uses the free set from SU! again, called Time Well Spent. I spent a lot of time with my blender pen on this one, but it was worth it. Another feature on this card is that it opens wide, meaning the opening is on the right.

Set: Time Well Spent
Colors: Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, Barely Banana, Pixie Pink
Other: White grosgrain, pop dots, yellow rhinestone brad.

Very pretty card. It looks beautiful, but I'm wondering how much more vibrant it must be if you want to re do the photos. I love the bling!
