Mojo Monday 474 - New Year's Cheer

I'm really starting to look forward to making my Mojo Monday card every week! I love working from a sketch, especially when it helps me try something new.

Here's the sketch for this week's challenge:

And here's my card:

The stamp set I used today is the November stamp of the month - New Year's Cheer.

Even though the stamp set has a New Year's theme, I always try to find ways to use the stamps for other occasions. By using the "Cheers" stamp and masking part of another stamp to just show the "to you" words, I created a potential birthday or congratulations card!

The green background patterned paper and the blue zip strip come from the City Sidewalks paper packet - see, it's not just for Christmas! The blue dot patterned paper is actually from one of the 4x6 cut-apart cards from the Swan Lake paper packet. I love mixing paper packets!

The two banners at the top are stamps from the New Year's Cheer stamp set, and I just stamped them in Peacock on scraps of white paper and cut them out. I stamped the other images in Peacock and Willow. To finish it off, I added a few Bitty Sparkles.

I'd love to see what you create with today's sketch or with the November stamp of the month!

Thanks for stopping by!
