While in India I purchased some lovely handmade paper in which is absolutely perfect for this challenge. I've used it to make the base layer of the card. To make the topper for my card I started by creating the number "2012" on my computer and filling the numbers with a gradient of colour orange to yellow and then cutting it out with my new star circle nestie. While still in the die I inked around the number with shades of blue. I used my nesties to cut a couple of layers in orange and yellow which I glued together to form a "sun" and onto which I attach the date! That's it a clean and simple design to welcome the New Year.

Whatever you do to welcome in the New Year, have a great day! We always have a quiet New Year's Eve, but have an Open House at our place today - a lovely time to spend with friends for drinks, nibbles, conversation, laughter, fun and love - a super day.
See you tomorrow!
