Auld Lang Syne

This week's Sketch with a Twist is to make a New Year's Card.  I love the bright colours in this one.  I tend to lean towards the traditional black, silver, white and gold for Near Years.  Everything was taken out of my scrap pile.  The stars were a happy coincidence.  I had forgotten I even had them.  The green and pink are actually glitter paper and are really pretty in real life.  The star also matches the ink for Happy New Year in reality.  I'm not sure why it's orange in the photo.
