Happy New Year

I had to make some New Year cards so took the opportunity to enter some challenges.
The card is embossed with Sizzix 'texture fade' I then highlighted the design by embossing with a sparkly EP. A new technique - it really makes the design stand out)  I then layered it onto white card (but not crooked like this scan shows!!) The letters have also been embossed with Ebony Shimmer EP. In real life this is so sparkly and festive, but it is extremely difficult to show it from a scan.
I would like to enter the following:-
Polkadoodles - Happy New Year
A Blog Named Hero - New Technique
Crafty Ribbons - New Beginnings

May I wish all of my followers a Happy and Prosperous New Year
