Simple Sunday Challege - It's A Celebration!

WELCOME TO 2012!!!!!   
Can you believe it, it's 2012!  I have a feeling this is going to be an awesome year!  And to start it off, we have our first Simple Sunday Challenge of the New Year at Getting Cricky with K Andrew! This week we were asked to create a project celebrating something.....a new year, a new home, 
a new baby, etc....  
For my project I created a really simple card celebrating 
the NEW YEAR!!!!!  
My card is a A2 sized card.  My blue base is card stock from Wal-Mart, sorry I don't remember the name of the stack, sorry!  My next layer was cut using Nestabilities Lacey Squares.  I stamped my images and sentiment using Versa Mark and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  To create my background, I inked it with Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry.  I simply inked some sponges and spread the ink all over the card stock and over the embossed image. Then I used some silver stickles to fill in the circles on my party hat and made some swirls all over the card!  It's kinda hard to see the swirls but I tell you they are there!  For my sentiment and images I used the following K Andrew Stamp sets: For "Have A" I used Coffee and Tea for You and Me; for "Hoot-errific!" I used Owly Hoo; For the owl image I used Hooty Owl and for the cute party hat I used Accessories for Hooty Owl.  Below are the sets so you can see all the darling images!
