"Ringing in the New Year Blog Hop"

Happy 2014 & welcome to 3 Twenty Craft's "Ringing in the New Year Blog Hop"!

Today's blog hop is very exciting full of awesome projects to help inspire your creativity for the new year and to help you reflect on this past year and all the wonderful blog hops that you have participated in and hopped along with!

If you arrived here from Kellie- then you are on the right track. If you have not arrived from Kellie's blog, then head over to
 Jo's Scrap Shack and start at the beginning.

Here is my project for this hop:
  The card's background is made using 3 Twenty Crafts stamp set Winter Wonderland.

The background inspiration came from this picture I found when I googled New Year 2014, loved the whole snowflake effect for it

The card base and the square is from the cardstock pack Seaside (the paper co.) the stamped layer iis from DCWV Stack 8 and the scalloped background is from my scrap pile. I used the Spellbinders Classic Square/Scallop Small for the sentiment block. The sentiment was generated from Word-Script MT Bold and Braggadocio fonts and the 2014 was also stickled with Diamond sticles for the glitter effect (came out almost a goldish color) added the wine glasses from a fiscars stamp set and the noisemakers for a cut out of an old scrapbooking 2008 calendar day sheet (you'll see more of this use this coming year :)
Well my friends, I hope you have enjoyed my project. I want to wish you a very happy and safe new year!
