DD #33 & CFC83 & 10 Minutes Craft Dash #9



Here to share a card for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.
This week we were to create a card using these colours:


Now for the dessert option of music think of the music of firecrackers and the music of
Auld Lang Syne at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2013.

If you had a chance to read this years Holiday Cards & More you may have seen a card created 
by JJ Bolton that used the dandelion head from Papertrey Ink's Botanical Silhouettes as fireworks!  What a brilliant idea, that I used for my card today but embossed with gold embossing power.

I am also adding this card to CAS-ual Fridays Dashing Through the Holidays Challenge and the 10 Minute Craft Dash completing my embossed card in 9 minutes 55 seconds--Whew!
Which kind of goes along with my dash to post at Dynamic Duos with 7 minutes to spare.









Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This is a great card Tracey - the gold makes it look very elegant, which I'm sure is not how the people celebrating 2013 will look after a long party! lol!
