Happy New Year and CHNC blog candy

This week, everybody will have another chance at winning some blogaversary candy over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge. Hazel also pointed me to the StitchyBear Digital Store where I found the digital paper and stamps that I used for the two cards below. The sentiment was part of the December freebies from TlcCreate.

I first printed the digital paper on a sheet of A4 and then printed the sentiment in the top left and bottom right corners before cutting the paper to size. The baubles were also printed in two goes. First I printed the two red circles I created in Word and using one of the available filling effects and then I printed the bauble stamps on top of this. The silver "crowns" were printed on white cardstock and then coloured with a silver gel pen. The sticker chains and red ribbon are from my stash.

I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
CHNC - #53 Celebration candy continued
