Magical Monday - Happy New Year!


Aloha and E Komo Mai to this week's Magical Monday challenge at TMITA with Paper Cupcakes!!! This week the designers got to pick an image from Nina's store and our challenge was to use "Something Sparkling!" Well I saw these guys (image is called "Faster Please") and thought they would be perfect under sparkling fireworks! Here in Hawaii New Year's is an even bigger deal with fireworks than the 4th of July so my inspiration was easy to come by (actually people start setting them off a little bit starting in October but the weeks before New Year's are crazy with'em!).

Hard to tell in the pic but I also used a pearlized paper for the snow which gives it even more sparkle and I edged the "Happy New Year!" 'moon' with platinum ink to give a bit of a shine too! Image was colored with Prismacolor Markers and fussy cut out. I reattached the sled to the big penguin with black embroidery floss.

Here's hoping you have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve/Day!

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
