Light Up the Sky with Fireworks !!

November 5th will soon be here and for all those in the UK that will mean bonfires and fireworks  so that is the theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,, 

Light Up Your Cards with Glitter  and Sparkle ! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Mary and Andrea aka The Ribbon Girl so a fab prize on offer !! :-)

We don’t celebrate Guy Fawkes here but I still wanted to go with the Fireworks theme so I thought I would make a Happy New Year card :-)

For the background I used plain dark blue card and sprayed with Tawny Turquoise spray from Lindy’s Stamp Gang, so shimmery IRL.  I used a Hero Arts Fireworks stamp and silver glitter embossing powder to light up the sky and added a few crystal gems for stars in there too :-)  The London skyline was a design for the Silhouette Cameo and I added some little windows, a gear, also cut on the Sihouette with 2013 in the middle. I made the  Happy New Year sentiment using a Simon Says Stamp ‘oh Happy day’ die,a Sizzix Typeset Alphabet die and lots of crystal glitter :-)
