Happy New Year Village Scene Card

Happy New Year 2015!

I was up till the ball dropped in NY on tv and asleep before midnight here in Central TX. A tradition that my mother started is to put out a coin on the windowsill for each member of the family (yes there is one for Daisy since she is a part of our family) to ensure that you have money/fortune in the new year. I put out TX quarters. 

Created this multi-layer scene card inspired by a card I saw which you can click here to see. First time using my new Simon Says Stamp Village die set.

 Supplies List 

adhesive: Scotch foam tape
gem: K & Company
ink:  Delicata Golden Glitz
paper:  vellum  cardstock -  white

ribbon: Celebrate it Ribbon Bow-tique
