Each Design Team Member will be featuring an original project using products found at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Store. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration!
Shop Pumpkin Spice's FIRST Weekly Challenge is all about celebrating the NEW YEAR!! Simply make something that makes you think of NEW YEARS! But be sure to FINISH the Blog Hop first. :)
For my SPS January 2013 Blog Hop project, I went with the NEW YEAR weekly challenge theme.
I made a quick card based on the Mojo Monday 261 Sketch.
I used some Bazzill Kraft Cardstock as my card's base and the beautiful My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland 6x6 Paper Pad I got from Shop Pumpkin Spice.
The large snowflake is a plastic ornament I picked up at Walmart during the Holidays. I layered it with a Paper Rosette I made using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Rosette Die I got from Shop Pumpkin Spice.  I ABSOLUTELY love this Rosette Die!! Its sooo much easier than scoring every 1/4" inch, I really recommend you get one.

 I glittered some Chipboard Thickers with Martha Stewart Glitter and added them to the Paper Rosette.
To the Fishtail Strip, I stamped the "Celebrate" Sentiment from the LaLa Land Crafts - New Year Marci Rubber Stamp with my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and added a small Prima Crystal to each side of the sentiment.

I finished off the card, by tying a bow with some white satin ribbon centered with some Stone Twinery Twine and a My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland Button.
To the inside of the card, I used another sentiment included with the LaLa Land Crafts - New Year Marci Rubber Stamp.
I hope you are still with me and have enjoyed my Celebrate 2013 Card using just some of the wonderful products you can find at Shop Pumpkin Spice.
