♥ It's Time to Party! ♥

Hello there! Happy New Year to you all! Personally, I can't wait for 2016! 2015 can just go away!! ;) Looking forward to new adventures, fun times and keeping to my New Year resolutions this year!! What are your New Year's Eve plans? We like to stay home especially since we have little ones. We have late night snacks (which we never do), games with the kids, watch Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve and of course have some champagne! Then we watch all of the fireworks that go off around here. Fun! And speaking of fun...there's a new challenge up at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
And this week's challenge...yup, you guessed it...PARTY like it's 1999! Or 2016, whichever you prefer! ;) It can be a New Year's card, Birthday, Anniversary, etc!
I made several cards using the DoCrafts Classic Decadence Forever Friends Die Cuts and Paper Pack. Love this paper pack! You can make several different types of cards from it. From Birthdays to New Year's to Just Because and Friendship cards. They can be cute, elegant or in between!

I also used the DoCrafts Forever Friends Metallic Twine as well. Sequins are the Champagne Sequin Mix by Lucy's Cards.

For this one, I used a Hero Arts Acetate Folded Card to make a shaker card. The sequins are Jack Frost Sequins by Lucy's Cards. I also used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies as well.

Here is a New Year's card made with the pack as well.

And finally, a sweet Birthday card made with some of the pack's Die Cuts.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I hope each and every one of you have a safe, healthy and very Happy New Year! Bring on 2016!
