Bloggers Challenge- Celebrate

Happy New Year Bloggers! Can you believe it is 2010???
  Our Bloggers Challenge theme this week is Celebrate- so I am posting a card I made for  friends, Deb and Mark, that entertain a group of our college friends every year on New Years Eve. Deb quit her job to open a catering business- and the food she prepares for our night together is always better than any 5 star restaurant you can imagine!
  I found this free Digital image on a blog- Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm. It is perfect for our new Years Celebration theme, don't you think?
  I colored the image with Copic markers in the following colors: E11, E31, E33, E35, W1, W3, C1, C3, C5, C7 and a touch of R29.
The clock is stamped from a set by Heidi Snapp and the pearls are from Queen and Company.  While I could have embellished this card a bit more, I left it the way it is- as the paper is gorgeous and I think it is fine simpler.  I used Sparkle Blanc and Lazer Black Glossy Lustre Cardstock .. OH.... this paper is divine!
