Old Pink for a New Year

See the sparkle!!
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a prize of vintage images from Lunagirl , and when I saw their challenge of 'Winter in Pink' I thought it would be nice to use one to enter.  But I am over Christmas!! So this card is a New Year card. I think the image was originally from a french New Year card because it has a NY greeting in the corner.

Can you spot the continuity error in the photo? She is wearing short-sleeves in the snow! I will be heading into the snowy north myself later on today, (we have such a mild climate in England that snow is a big deal!) , and I will not be taking any short-sleeved dresses!

I used the old masking tricks  to make a moon and snowy hills and doused them in fine, clear glitter.
The text and sentiment stamps are by Sarah Hurley.

As well as Lunagirl's challenge , I'd also like to enter:
Brown Sugar  happy new year
Scrapping for Fun winter
Eureka Stamps  glitter

So gorgeous! I love the sparkle and the full moon and the little pink pearls, and the soft vintage pink color palette you used. Just so lovely for my Winter in Pink challenge! And isn't your sentiment perfect for the New Year? Thanks for being part of my challenge at! ~ Karen

Wow... I LOVE this card! The vintage look is flawless and the pink is perfect here. I love the glitter, I love the pearls, I love the image, and the fantastic script paper. Seriously, a stand out card.
