Hey there everyone!! Today begins the third challenge for Paper Vineyard . Paper Vineyard is a scrapbook store located in Chandler, Arizona and the new design team will feature cards, layouts and other paper-crafted projects showcasing fabulous products that you can find in their store! I am VERY excited to be able to design for them, as they carry some terrific products. This week is the first week to showcase product and participate in their new challenges where you can showcase your creativity and have a chance to win a fabulous prize. There will be two monthly posts with challenges featuring showcased products from the story, using the latest techniques in paper-crafting! What's even better is that you get to participate too!! So, what are you waiting for?

You can visit Paper Vineyard's blog to see my designs along with the other amazing team member's fantastic creations. This week's theme was to create  a New Year's Card!! I was soooo thrilled, as I have not made a New Year's card EVER!! So, I broke out some Cosmo Cricket, some Pink Paislee and my favorite embellie, doilies and made this.

"Rockin The New Year" Card
I wanted to a shabby chic feel to it, so I painted the edges, stitched a border,
 added a doily and used some tinsel ribbon from Pink Paislee

I inked a frame from Pink Paislee and added the sentiment right on top

I also painted the edges of the chipboard bells, and sprinkled some yummy
tinsel glitter on them. The stars are punched out from thick paper, and then glittered
and inked up!
