Inkspirational Challenge - New Year Photo

Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is to be inspired by this photo:
For my DT card I just went for it on the goldness and newyearsiness!  It is a shaker card that I designed and cut on the Silhouette electronic cutting machine.

This card will be given to my brother and his family when I go to their New Year's Eve party tonight. The one I gave them last year has been propped up on a shelf all year long ...yes, honestly.. even when I've made a surprise visit, it is still there!!!! So no-one deserves a handmade card more than they do and I hope they like this one.

I really hope to see you enter a photo -inspired project at Inkspirational.

I'd like to enter:
