Wishing You the Best Year Yet! for Jan's Digis Stamps

Here we go!  Challenge #3 at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenges, or, as those of us that have followed her work affectionately refer to it as, JDS Designs Challenge Blog.  The challenges will be on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, so what a great way to start out your week! The will run until noon (Eastern) the Sunday before the new challenge.  You'll find all the rules on a tab at the JDS Designs Challenge Blog.  Her beautiful digis can be found in her shop here.

I've made lots of Christmas cards recently, so I took a break from them, and used one of Jan's beautiful sets to make a Happy New Year card.  You need a few of those, too, right?

This card uses the set New Year's Eve:

There are lots of elements in this set, but I chose a pre-colored image, and a sentiment.  After that, it was easy peasy to create my card.  Jan's pre-colored images are the best I've seen.  I couldn't color them better if I tried (so I didn't).  All I did was ink the edge of the oval frame with some distress ink to give it an aged look.  The sentiment is part of the New Year's Eve set.  

The background paper is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It is one of the Loving Winter papers.   The die cut stars were cut out from dies by Spellbinders.

Please join us the next two weeks for Jan's Digi Designs Challenges.  They are truly Anything Goes!  From Cards, to tags, to crocheted pieces, anything you makes, link it up!

I also wanted to let you know about a Cyber Monday sale going on at Jan's Digi Designs. From now through Friday, December, 6, all stamps are 25% using code CyberJan.  There are nearly 100 awesome digi sets to take advantage of, so get shopping!
