Throwback Thursday #7


Today Emma announced her challenge for this weeks Throwback Thursday. We were to use the Wild Card Cricut cartridge and have a holiday theme. This was more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Emma's example was the pumpkin Halloween card and I was not in the mood to think about Christmas. I ended up deciding to make a Happy New Years card. I cut out the base with some pearlescent silver paper. I added the accent pieces with black and brown. I cut out the "cheers" in purple. Then I decided to add some pp from Stampin' UP to the background to make the champagne bottle stand out better. It is hard to see the Cheers in the picture, but it looks better in person, I promise! Oh I also cut out the cute envelope to go with the card. Both were cut at 5 1/2 inches.
