A little something just for you

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope you celebrated responsibly.  The city of Melbourne had its' fireworks but I can never make it to midnight so we go to the childrens one at 9.30pm and I have come to the conclusion that everyone loves fireworks! 
It is stinking hot here today in Melbourne (our 4th day of very hot weather) and it is stiffling to go outside so I am in the craft room making cards! what a shame aye :) I will bear it!
The card below is following the sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps blog  and I also made it for the challenge over at Paper Sundaes - something old (paper - Echo Park 'for the record') and something new (Ranger buttercup liquid pearls ... mmmmm delicious!) from your stash.

I am a lover of liquid pearls and just before christmas I added a few more colours to my overused 'white opal' colour :) LOL
materials - Bazzill black cardstock; Echo Park 'for the record' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'squared posies' stamps; Stazon jet black ink; Crayola colouring pencils; Kaisercraft black rhinestones; Ranger 'buttercup' liquid pearls; 1/8" yellow eyelet; 16mm yellow grossgrain; 6mm yellow satin ribbon.
Have a great week.
