Happy New Year

Happy New Year! 

For my first card of the year, I used the MFT Wednesday sketch #105.  The main image is from MFT's a la modes Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I've tried this coloring technique a couple of times before so I'm still practicing but I really like how the gamsol really smooths out the pencil strokes.  The sentiment is a $1 stamp by Studio G that I purchased from Michaels sometime last year.  I really like how bold it is and it's size fit perfectly with the image.  The card base is cut to 6" x 5 1/2".  I used Stampin Up's night of navy and real red card stock, and the patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye.
