Anything Goes in the New Year!

Hi everyone!

Let me start off by wishing you all a very happy and crafty New Year! Have you had  a good Christmas? We were celebrating at my in-laws in Scotland, we had a lovely time . We even had time for a day trip to St Andrews, home of golf. A very nice day walking around town and my hubs even got his picture taken on the bridge on the Old Course (very famous I'm told). It was nice to be back home though and we had a lovely quiet New Year's celebration with some lovely food and drinks, just the two of us.

Now that the new year has started, crafty challenges are starting back up as well, starting with Treasured Times. This one's a pretty good one to ease you back into crafty mode: "ANYTHING GOES".The DT girls have been playing with Happy New Year Girl by Erica Nicomedi for this challenge, here's my card:

* Happy New Year Girl by Erica Nicomedi, coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noirs
* DPs scraps from my scrappy shoebox
* Champagne glasses from stamp set,  coloured & Stickles added to the bubbles
* Pearls from stash
