Happy New Year: Reverse Confetti SFYTT

post 2 of 2 for HERE for my Seasons Giving Blog Hop post (giveaways!)

Hello and Happy New Year!   I've made a resolution to make more birthday cards in 2016!  I don't know about you, but I'm always scurrying around last minute to make birthday cards.  Don't know why, I've always been that way.  So today's card is for a winter birthday:

paper:  basic grey juniper berry  stamps:  reverse confetti so very special/whole lotta hearts  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  reverse confetti circles 'n scallops confetti cuts

Red and Aqua = ♡  I think it is such a timeless combo, how about you?!

I was inspired by the January SFYTT:

There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.
Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!
You may enter as many times as you wish.
There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of this month.

I used the So Very Special Stamp set.  Love how you can mix + match to make sentiments!

so very special

I'm smitten with scallops, I think they add a nice bit of fancy to a design, Circles 'n Scallops has a great mix of scallops/circles!


Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I couldn't help but add some hearts to my design, Whole Lotta Hearts is a perfect set!

Make sure you check out the Reverse Confetti blog for more inspiration from my teamies!
