New Year, Old Ideas

I know it's supposed to be New Year, New You; but here I've used old stash ( the stamp is by October Afternoon, sentiment by Docrafts) and  an old, favourite technique (paper-piecing).

The only thing new is the (strange?) layout of the card. In fact, the yellow cardstock was originally going to be the base card but then I stuck the stamped panel on upside down! So, I had to cut it up and stick it onto another card base, which I thought I'd do in an offset way. New Year, same clumsy old me!
