Happy New Year! New Stamps and New Paper!!

Did everyone eat their Black Eyed Peas for good luck in the New Year? Yup! Good old southern tradition. Every year on New Years day I go to my old street where I grew up and go to a good friends family home for this wonderful tradition of good food and good old friends (They were like my second parents growing up and since my parents are long gone, I get a bit of "family" time) Enough chit-chat......This pretty card was a Sketch Challenge from fellow blogger Lorraine Castellon-Rowe. This was my 1st Sketch Challenge ever. It's a New Year lets try new ideas. I absoulutly love the way this card came out! Thanks Lorraine for the inspiration! Also made a cute notepad and bag to give as a gift to the "Black Eyed Peas" cook.

Stamp Set: Embrace Life
Paper: All SU: Ruby Red, River Rock, Ginger Blossom DS paper, Natural white for the flower
Ink: Ruby Red Craft Heat embossed with detail clear. Ruby Red Classic w/ aqua painter for flower
Ribbon: River Rock Double-Stitched
Punch: Lg. Oval Punch
