The white scalloped circle behind the image is actually the leftover from cutting out the mat behind the image! This is probably , technically nothing new, but I thought it was a good idea, so I went with it! I decided to give the image very little color, since I was going to use only black, white, silver and gold. I used some retired Stampin Up shimmer paint to color the balloons, some gold Smooch shimmer paint to color the candle, and a plain black marker to color the chairs. The SU shimmer paint was manufactured by Tsukineko (yes I had to look at the bottle to find out how to spell that, lol), so you might be able to find it online or in a store somewhere. The sentiment is from the stamp set called "Teeny Tiny Wishes" by Stampin Up, and the faux silver pearls are from Michael's craft store. So sorry I don't know where the card stock came from, it was part of a birthday present from a friend (thanks Kerry). Now, hop on over to the SND blog, and other DT blogs and see what great ideas are there to see. One last note, is that SND has a group over on the SNR Card Universe blog, so go over there and see even more samples with SND images. There is a link to that site over on my sidebar!
Please everyone have a very safe and happy New Years holiday!
