CD Sunday - Ring in the New Year x 2

Hi everyone.  I hope you have all had a good Christmas and I wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
Coincidentally  - 'New Year' is my choice of theme for the next two weeks.  I thought I would keep it seasonal and as perhaps some of you may want to make some New Year cards  -  'here be a challenge all ready and waiting'.

For my card I used a stitch pattern from here
and the beautiful tartan background paper and the paper bow came from Ooh La La CD - Yuletide Wishes.
Shaz and Jane - our Guest Designers have made some super cards for us so please have a look on the CD Sunday Blog - click on their names and you will be taken straight to their creations.  And of course you can do the same for the rest of the team.
Just remains for me to say a thank you for your support and to reiterate my wish to you - have a Prosperous and Happy 2016.

My children found I had put the new Groovi Plates (parchment) on my Amazon wish list  and bless them I received 8/9 to play with. Very generous of them.
I made this card this afternoon just to have a play.  A Groovi Plate is an acrylic transparent  plate with an etched design on to emboss and then incorporate or add to in your designs. They are especially good for borders and edges. There are many different sizes and shapes.
Here is the Happy New Year card I made and I did use an Ooh La La Cd for the background paper.

All done with Groovi Plates.
