November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: New Year's Cheer

The November Close To My Heart stamp of the month, New Year's Cheer, is now available!  It may seem a little early to be ringing in the new year, but it will be here before we know it! (If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Nina's blog.  You'll visit Priscilla next.)
My card combines several pieces of the Uptown paper pack with some extra Slate and White Daisy card stock.  (This sketch is a pattern from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 2.)  I added gold foil tape, gold shimmer trim, and a gold sequin to my card.  Believe it or not, if you look closely at the Whisper "sparkles" above the glasses, I added a gold marker dot to the center of each one.  This subtle effect is more powerful in person.  I almost traced the edges of the stamped focal panel with my gold marker but decided that if I did I just might be gilding the lily.  Less is more, right?

Thanks for hopping by!  I would love a comment before you go spread some cheer and visit PRISCILLA'S BLOG NEXT!
