Cut It Up Challenge #35 - New Year's Celebration

New Year's Celebration
Must Use a Die Cut
Prize: Celebration Die Set
My Project:
I hope everyone had a marvelous Christmas this last week and as we look to the start of a new year, I hope that you will find excitement in what's to come.  Do any of you make New Year's Resolutions? I haven't for a few years, but I think I will for 2014.  I am finding that I have so much room for personal improvement that I want to set some realistic goals to try and be better! 
Anyway, the card that I created for this Cut It Up challenge was made using the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge and papers from ColorBok (Wal-Mart).  I used some bling from Recollections and I do have some shimmery cardstock for the red hat and gray swirls, you just can't tell in the pic.  My sentiment stamp comes from a Fiskars holiday set.  I hope that you will join us for our challenge and link up your New Year's Celebrations cards or projects!
Thanks for checkin' in!!!
