So I lied............on accident

In my last post I said that it was the last challenge of the year at OCL.  Well, I lied, on accident!  I didn't realize that New Years Eve is a Friday.  So......head over to OCL, check out their sketch challenge for today (through next Thursday).  Remeber, a winner will be picked next year (week, LOL) to receive the stamp set of their choice.  I stayed with the New Years theme (see last post) as I needed to make 2 more cards to celebrate the new year. 
Card # 1
This stamp set is so easy and versatile to work with.  Just love it.
Simply says Happy New Year in gold embossing on the inside.

Recipe:
Images & Sentiments:  OCL "Cheers" stamp set
Cardstock, DP from Paper Pizzazz, Neenah Solar White
Inks:  Mememto inks, Copic markers
Embossing:  Ranger clear embossing powder, gold detail embossing powder.
The balloons are paper layers, the glasses and bottle are raised on dimensionals.
Border punch:  Martha Stewart
Die Cuts:  Nesties

The second card, following the same sketch.
and the inside

Not that I drink alot, but, this stamp set has some great drink stamps!  LOL
Fun to color and fairly easy to cut out.
Recipe is basically the same as the card above. 

This card may be entered into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments:  Anything Goes
Paper Playtime:  New Years
Dutch Dare Card Challenges:  New Beginnings
4 Crafty Chicks:  New Year
Stampin B's Design:  Celebration
