Card Sketch December #5

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Is everyone ready for some celebrating today? I don't know about you but I am so ready for 2008 to be OVER! Bring on 2009! I love the New Year, a fresh start, it's probably one of favorite times of the year. This weeks card is perfect for any occasion, and I seem to be loving the big greetings right now.

I made this card back in November and I love it. I did have a major moment of indecision when doing the sentiment panel (done in photoshop) and trying to decide on which way around to do the colors: white text on black or black text on white. In the end I printed both, and tried them both, I prefer it this way round.
