Ring in the New . . .KSS Style!

Happy Monday! Anyone else out there snowed in?! Looks like it'll be a white Christmas for sure here! :)

This week's Kitchen Sink Stamps' Monday challenge is brought to you by our wonderful Crew Leader, Dee Jackson! Dee challenged us to "Ring in the New Year!" Come join the fun and make a card celebrating the coming new year. Post a link to your card in the KSS Group at Paper Craft Planet. Use tag KSCC#4 if you upload your picture there and come chat about the challenge here!

I decided to try making a fun background with my KSS Playful Numbers, 1/2 Pint Playful Alphabet and 1/2 Pint Playful Alphabet Buddy. I took out all the 2's, 0's and 9's and started laying them out on my block until I found an arrangement that I liked. Then I stamped it repeatedly on some shimmery white paper using Memento Pear Tart ink. A layer of some pretty matching Bazzill paper on a Kraft card base finished this quick and easy layout. (I'm disappointed with the color in this pic. . . it's such a pretty chartreuse IRL but I can't seem to get a good pic . . . sorry you'll have to trust me!)

The ribbon is some beautiful Pink Paislee trim I picked up at Emma's Paperie. . . it's velvety and stretchy and just so pretty! For a fun "pop" of color I added the sentiment on a Nesties ribbon slide in a fun dark pinky color. A little bling and we're done! Hope you like it! Be sure to visit the rest of the crew to see how they are ringing in 2009!
