New Start for a New Year

Happy New Year! The theme for Monkey Challenge 89 is a Fresh Start + sketch. I went with a Congratulatory theme. I used a star embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight (I think) card stock. The DSP is Ice Cream Parlor from last year's Sale-a-bration catalog. I stamped the image in Basic Black and colored it in with various markers and colored pencils. The small circle and scalloped square are Wild Wasabi cardstock, the ribbon is Old Olive. The sentiment is from the Happy Greetings stamp set from the summer mini catalog. It is stamped on white card stock then punched with the decorative label punch and sponged with Wild Wasabi. I added rhinestones to the scallops in the circle and the left & right scallops of the square.

Here's the sketch - isn't the baby giraffe cute?
