Happy New Year (Almost)

Hello!  I trust you all survived the Holidays! 

I love this time of year, looking forward to all the possibilities that a New Year, clean slate, fresh start has to offer.....don't you?  Hope so!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Ala Carte.....to choose from any of the 2014 Make It Monday Videos, and the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!

So very happy to use colors, lots and lots of bright, bold colors!

I chose the Make It Monday Video, Vellum Overlays with Danielle Flanders.  Her card is fun and fabulous and I based my card on her creation:

By Danielle Flanders

And here is my card: 

Another fun card and technique to make.  I am loving my layers, especially the Vellum layer.  I used the stamp sets, Lovely Layers and Tag-Its #2 both from PTI.  The Designer Paper is from Teresa Collins, Fabrications.  Spellbinders Classic Circle die, Sizzix Branch With Leaves, and a Wavy Edge Die from MFT.  Stampin' Up! Inks in, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Pumpkin PieSwiss Dots Embossing Folder, Dots, Ribbon and some Sequins for texture and accents.  The Vellum is some that I had in my stash came in a little booklet from Hot Off The Press, I have had it forever!  It has a nice little dotted pattern on it. 
Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you all in the New Year!
