New Beginnings

Happy New Year Everyone!
We celebrated the arrival of the New Year with friends over a shared meal and a bunch of games. It was fun, but none of us wanted to let the party go on too long after midnight as we were all ready for bed after lots of wonderful food and drink!
The challenge this week at One Stop Card Crafts is New Beginnings which we hope you will join in with. This card is my contribution, which I also made for part of Stamp TV's Christmas challenge.
The background was made by 'Cuttlebugging' a piece of waxed paper in an embossing folder and then ironing the paper between sheets of card. I then sponged the card with SU Bashful Blue ink. I rather like the effect!
The stamps are from Stampin' Up (a Christmas gift from my daughter) and the border punch is from Martha Stewart.
It won't be long now until our new grandchild arrives, we're really excited, it's due n the 29th!
