Happy New Year!

Hello there!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and a very happy new year!

I was busy preparing Christmas and New Year and didn't have the chance to blog much in December. However, I am here today with my first card and first blog post for 2015!
 My new year's day was quiet and relaxing and I was in the mood for card making. So I decided to make a new year card to wish everyone a "Happy New Year! May your 2015 be better and filled with love and prosperity!" 
I just loved this Pandamonium stamp set from Mama Elephant. These pandas are just so cute! I've also used the little sparkler stamp from Mama Elephant's In My Heart set, but only inked the tip to create the colourful fireworks. The stand alone Happy Script die, also from Mama Elephant, has the most beautiful font. It just makes the card look so elegant! 
Here are a couple more close up photos:  
These Pandas were fuzzy cut and then attached by using foam pads.
To make all lanterns shine, Stickles glitter glue has been applied.  
"new year" stamp is from The Big, the Bold and the Happy set by Winnie & Walter.
This has been stamped and heat embossed in white.
This card was inspired by using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #104. I flipped the sketch 180 degrees.
  I am also entering this card to:
I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by. If you are having the 2nd of January off, like me ^_^, then enjoy your long new year's break!
