Colorful and Happy

Happy New Year! 2016 just flew by for me. How about you? I want to show you my card for the Just For Fun challenge that I made with a New Year's wish. Don't you love this saying from Just for Fun? "Colorful and happy is how I want your life to be." This is my New Year's wish to you!

So here is the first challenge of the New Year. It is a free for all, so anything goes! We hope to have you join in. You could win and receive a gift certificate to the store! You can see all the details here. Also check out the Just For Fun 40 % off sale!

                                      No automatic alt text available.

                                                    Now onto my card.

The first thing I did was to stamp the Jumping Girls onto watercolor paper. Then I taped together the Spellbinders small circle dies and embossed them on the paper.

Next I added Color Bursts in areas at the side and bottom of the paper and sponged some stars at the bottom using a stencil. I also added confetti stars and sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 

Happy New Year!
