Celebrate the new year!

Hi there!

After all the festivities of the last couple of days, I found  time to create a card for some of my favorite challenges!







A really clean & SIMPLE card today ;) using my own sentiment, a piece of torn vellum. and gold liquid pearls.

The theme (LIGHT) was inspired by the challenge at Casology.

An explanation of the thought process : I was thinking light champagne bubbles popping up to the surface of the glass , hence the celebration sentiment ;)

I will also link up at AAA cards , where they want us to use a little gold , Virginias view challenge , where it's all about white, and anything goes at Simon says stamp.


I saved my sentiment for you to use :

Fantastiese en briljante interpretasie van die codeword, vrou!!! Dit lyk voorwaar soos sjampanje vol borreltjies wat vrolik boontoe dryf!!! En hier weer die swart raam wat soveel ekstra lewe gee!! Ek staan weereens verslae oor jou vermoee om 'n spesiale gevoel so treffend in 'n kaartjie saam te vat deur net die minimum te gebruik!!! Jy is voorwaar een van die bestes daarbuite vrou!!!!
Groete
