Irridescent Celebration

The last day of 2011!  It's hard to believe; this year has gone by so quickly!  A lot of good things happened in 2011 and I am anticipating a fantastic 2012!
Today's card uses the Friday Mash Up!...
  1. Make a project that "Sparkles".
  2. Or Make a project "Celebrating the New Year".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Celebrating the New Year that Sparkles" . 
...and the colours are from Our Creative Corner:
Bright Pink (Melon Mambo), Bright Green (Wild Wasabi), Bright Yellow (Daffodil Delight), and Bright Purple (Elegant Eggplant).

The "fancy" heart from "I (Heart) Hearts" was done with Versamark and Irridescent Ice on each of the colours and then cut out and raised on top of hearts I created using the new Hearts Collection Framelits.  I used one of the flower centres from "Greenhouse Garden" to create the bursts in the background.  I honestly think I use that stamp more often for a background then I do for the centre of a flower!

A bit more bling was added to the Celebrate sentiment which comes from one of the Sale-a-bration sets.

I am now off to do more playing around with new sets - I also vowed I would do some cleaning today too.

I hope you have a safe and fun eventful last day to 2011 - and Best Wishes to you in the New Year!
Thanks for visiting...Joan
