Day 5 at MHK Designs

     This is the last day of the October release from MHK Designs and we're giving you a head start on New Year Greetings, which is the name of this set.  Yes, I know it's early but I always get so caught up in Christmas that I often forget about the New Year.  This year, I've already gotten 5 cards done, all using this particular set.  Here's the first one I did.

     I really like Mynn's retro image which I colored with ProMarkers and metallic gold and silver ProMarkers.  Hard to see in the photo but it gives a spectacular shine to the card.   I die cut the image with a die from Spellbinders, and then framed it with another plain octagon die cut (QuicKutz.)  That's metallic gold paper which also adds some shine.

     The ribbon is metallic and I added a simple white pearl to the bow.  The sentiment is part of the set (see photo below) and I matted it with the same gold paper.
