I finally have a cartridge for the M.A.G. challenge! Each week I've been checking their challenge blog but no luck, I didn't own the cartridge they were using. Then I picked up the Simply Charmed cartridge recently and I was so excited to use it for the first time with the M.A.G. challenge. The challenge is to use only the image on page 75. When I looked at the design teams cards I knew I had to do something creative. That team is sooo talented. I decided not to do a birthday card. I thought of New Years Eve and the horns and confetti that everyone using to celebrate. I knew I wanted to use white silver and black but I needed an accent color and I thought red was perfect. So here is my New Years card even though I'm not ready to say goodbye to 2011.
My card base is black and measures 5.5 x 4.25. I added a white layer and then embossed a black overlay with the D'Vine Swirls folder and added red glittery card stock to the bottom. I used my Recollection punch on the red card stock and cut my horn, confetti and balloons at 3 1/2. I used my GellyRoll pens to added stitching to some die cuts. I also inked them and added stickles to make them extra festive. My sentiment is printed from my computer.
