Paper Therapy-January 3 2011

Hello all!! HAPPY NEW YEAR Welcome to our  thirteenth challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous twelve have been SUPER fun and we'd love to have you join us!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week's challenge was to lift a design from our favorite blog. Choosing which blog to use was difficult for me, but I decided to "lift" my design from Designs by Sarah . I REALLY love how she uses embellishments, her use of paint and cardstock and the way she lays out her designs. Since it's a New Year, I decided to make a New Year's card! 

"May Peace be Yours" by Sarah Martina
