Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #96

Happy New Year my friends!!! It's 2010, officially! My best wishes to you for the new year!

Thanks for stopping by for another sample card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I again used an image from Pink Petticoat's whimsical Chirp Up digital set. The sentiment came with this image.

And it being the first day of 2010, I decided to make a card that celebrates this special day, too!

Yes! It's the adorable Annie! She must be one of the most delightful stamp characters that I know! You can find more of Annie stamps at Sugar Nellie. Sorry that my close-up of Annie is a little fuzzy... DH said that she is "drunk." LOL!!

I think her big bottle of champagne is perfect for the New Year celebration! I added some Diamond Stickles to the bubbles so that they look a little more festive. =)

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
