Ally's Angels #66 DT card for 10 January 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's still jumpy and flummoxed over how quickly 2022 seemed to go by and the prospects of 2023! Ally's Angels Challenge Blog's #66 Anything Goes starts January 10th. I decided to do a Happy New Year card. 

I've found in the past 10 years or so, that sometimes I receive late Christmas cards from acquaintances or extended family members that I hadn't sent to and instead of creating a 'late' Christmas card, I'll make and send them something about winter wishes or for HNY. 

If you've followed my card-making in 2022, I did a free-form acrylic painting with 3 colors on white cardstock with some added gold glitter tempera paint that's been featured in several cards. Well, I've got another section of it (about 4.25" x 5.25") that I laid a varied star stencil over and added the same blue acrylic paint with a foam brush. Then I outlined each star with a small tip black marking pen. One foam blue and white snowflake for embellishment and gold lettering complete the card.
