Bloggers Challenge - Celebration

Happy 2010! What better way to start off the new year then with a celebration theme for Bloggers Challenge! As we start out the New Year, I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am that you stop by to see what I've been creating. I'm looking forward to sharing my love of paper crafting with you

As I look back on 2009, it was a wonderful year for me creatively. I had the opportunity to design for some wonderful companies (some new, some I've worked with in the past), I reached a few creative goals I set for myself, and saw that work pay off having my creations published in various magazines, for this I'm grateful!

Sticking with the Bloggers Challenge Celebration Theme, I created a Happy Birthday card for the New Year! I found this great pattern paper from Basic Grey - Euphoria that reminded me of fireworks! I used the paper for my background and to paper piece the clown from the Artistic Outpost Send in the Clowns plate. I did also add a bit of Red and White (face/hands) card stock for additional paper piecing.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Send in the Clowns, Polaroid Cutie
Ink - Black Archival, Markers, Spica Glitter Pens
Card Stock, Neenah White, Black, Red
Other - Basic Grey Euphoria, Red Stick on Gems

Wishing you all a creative 2010!
