Silvery New Year

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  It's been a super busy week here and I'm just now getting to share the card I made for last week's November Week 2 Viva la Verve challenge and it's already time for a new challenge to post! Be sure to head on over to the VLV Sketches blog to see Christyne's lovely sketch + inspiration for this week.

I just watched Tangled (one of my favorite recent Disney movies) again with the boys last week and totally had paper lanterns on the brain, so I knew I wanted to use the lantern image from Light My World. I started by embossing it in silver on pear pizzazz, then cutting it out by hand.  I used a cropadile for the hang hole, then threaded some silvery ribbon through and tied with silver cord.  The black panel is stamped with the small star image in jasmine Mix'd Media Inx, then matted with silver shimmer paper.

I used the same star for and a Versamark pad for some tone on tone stamping on the pear pizzazz panel, adding the Happy New Year sentiment at the bottom in black.  A silver doily is behind this layer and my main black panel is embossed with a chevron embossing folder and lightly sponged with the jasmine mix'd media inx.  I finished off with a rhinestone and silver pearl accent on the lantern.  A little hard to photograph because of all the shine, but sparkle-tastic in real life.

That's all for my card.  If you haven't had a chance to comment on my Verve Spotlight Hop posts, here are the links.  The prize drawing deadline is tonight (11/21) at 10pm Mountain.
