Are you ready to countdown to midnight and a fresh start in the New Year?
I found some lovely items that paired together for just such a celebration!
Let's start with the cover panel, shall we? I had my eye on this Pinkfresh Ornate Circle for quite some time - so happy to finally make it my own. Doesn't it make the greatest jumping off point for lots of the details?
Speaking of details - check out how I added a bit of embossing to the center circle - yes, it does cut out from the frame. Thanks, Cathy for adding that Spellbinder Forevergreen embossing folder to your shop - it is a favorite for sure!
I cut a few of the greenery and one more Poinsettia from Spellbinders' Holiday Blooms for my floral arrangement and found just what I wanted to say in the Altenew Paint-a-Flower: Hydrangea set. Love when that happens! I stamped my sentiment onto the smallest of the Slimline Labels in black, then clear embossed it.
I'm looking forward to the New Year and fresh starts - aren't you?!
We are wishing you all good luck, good health and yes, some magic, too!
