Just Us Girls #169 - New Year's Theme with SPARKLE!

Hi there everyone!  I'm back with another Just Us Girls challenge.  This week is our Wild Card Challenge, which simply means the hostess can choose whatever type of challenge she wants!  Our marvelous Maria has chosen the challenge of making a New Year's themed card with SPARKLE!  My type of card, cause I love sparkle!
But before we get to the challenge, I have something special to say...kind of sad!  We are saying farewell to our very lovely and talented Lynn Mangan.   She has been a very special addition to our JUGs design team for quite a while, and has chosen to move on.  But she has told us she will still play along with us from time to time!  Best wishes, Lynn and Happy New Year!  We will miss you!
OK, so on with the challenge!

I chose a very literal interpretation to this challenge.  I love sparkle, and this Art Glitter is so cool!  It doesn't leave glitter all over the place (including my face, clothing, and fingers!) like regular glitter.  You burnish it into the paper with your fingers and it doesn't come off!  Love it!  I ran my numbers through the Xyron machine so the glitter would stick to it.  The dp is Delovely from Cosmo Cricket and I punched it with a star punch.  I backed it with a piece of turquoise paper.  The punch stars were not wasted.  I just added a bit of glue and placed them on the card.  It made it look more festive!

You can see more fabulous inspiration from our JUGs design team at these blogs.  Make sure you stop by Lynn's blog for her farewell JUGs post too!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
