Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
I hope 2012 brings you peace, good health, and happiness. Well, I've already been off for a week and I thought that I'd have more time to stamp, but with the holidays and family time, I haven't had much time. I started the year off with a new card and I'm happy to be back for another post.

Today's post is to celebrate the new year. For the sketch I went to Create with Connie and Mary for CCMC182 Sketch Challenge. I also went to Friday Mashup for Mashup Challenge 39 to create a project that sparkles and/ or make a project celebrating the new year. I decided to mashup both challenges and created a sparkly card to celebrate the new year.
