Happy New Year

Time for another fun challenge at House of Cards.
Add a Building and/or Colors: 



I am excited to be back for another term with House of Cards.  As you see from above I went with the colors using a digital set New Year Greeting by MHK Designs.  I used metallic paste on my designer paper, coated it with Distress clear rock candy crackle paint and then sprinkled some glitter on top. I did the same with some die cut stars.  Close up below.

The crackled metallic background is just awesome. I've never tried the rock candy crackle, although I've got some. Works so beautifully with the metallic and what a brilliant idea to do for your rockin' New Year's card. TFS & Hugs. Happy New Year too.
