Cheers to a New Year!

Cheers to you!  I am starting the New Year celebration a tad early on my blog.  I am so excited because hubby and I are heading to a lovely inn for the event.  I plan to enjoy my evening by ringing in a brand new year full of health, happiness, and prosperity.  How about you?  Any plans for the evening?

This card combines lots of texture and patterns with a focus on the sentiment.  I used a SRM sticker which always delights because they lay so incredibly smooth and I never have issues with bubbles or finger prints.  I used a mustard yellow trim with orange twine wrapped around it for a little extra something-something.  I don't know why I am using that word but there it is.  I stapled a strip of corrugated cardboard on the larger navy blue strip and then added the orange buttons because embellishing is good and I have so many dang buttons. 
I hope you have a wonderful New Year's eve and wishing you the best in 2012!
