Happy New Year!

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by
Where oh where did the Holiday season go??  I got so far behind with my wreath and ornament orders that NO Christmas cards got sent out!!  I had all intentions in making and then I quickly realized it was December 25th and that was not going to happen.  Into my stamp stash I went. 
I have a love for fancy fonts and so I found the Wintery Script from Lawn Fawn and knew this would be my card.  I then when to Pinterest for a bit of inspiration and saw circles and twine and all kinds of goodies.. So I got out the Circle die plate from Queen & Company.  I knew this would be it!
I first took the die from Queen & Company and cut 25 with my Vagabond 2.  It was super simple and now I have a big stash of circles from the negative. 
I then took the Happy New Year stamp and my Mini MISTI (which is the most incredible tool)  and stamped in groups of 5 with Brutus Monroe embossing ink and embossed with Brutus Monroe Gilded.  Once I complete 25 in this process, I started my layering.  I found 3 different golds that I wanted to use.  I adhered the layered piece and then to my card base.
I used my Cricut for the inside.  I did not want to handwrite on all 25, so I did a simple New Years message on the inside and let my Cricut do the writing for me.
I then added a few stars from a pack I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  After a while, I got to thinking a stamped star would be easier.. So I got out the Papertrey Ink stamp set Star Scribbles and stamped a few stars. 
I love the different looks each card holds.  I was bumming that I did not get to send out Christmas cards, but it turned out for the better.. these are SUPER cute and I know the recipients will be surprised to receive the card.
This card is entered into the Simon Says Wednesday challenge:  Anything Goes
