CELEBRATE

I love the classy images on the Auld Lang Syne plate from Artistic Outpost.
I love classy black and white and I thought would be perfect to showcase the very glamorous image on my card.
I used an ornate background stamp for my background stamping with black archival ink, adding a little black ink to the edges.  I then stamped the glamorous image onto white card adding black corners cut using the ATC and corners die. I then added CELEBRATE to the side of my image and Happy New Year to each corner of my card. 
When I saw that she was holding a top hat I knew instantly that I wanted to use one of Wendy Vecchi's black top hat embellishments somewhere on my card.  I also added a little black and white twine to the back of my hat for added texture and interest.  I also added CELEBRATE to the top of my hat.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
