MTTCC #50 Theme is New Year's Day 2023 starts 23 December 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's always happy when I get to be creative and this sparkly New Year's Day card does put a smile on my face!

My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog can also be about other winter holidays, festivals, and observances held in December and January. We've chosen New Year's Day to be the focus for #50 (December 23, 2022 to January 5, 2023). 

My thoughts always connect New Year's Eve (glittery ball dropping in New York City) to the New Year's Day morning Rose Parade in Pasadena, California so when I saw this red and silver with purple glittery specialty paper in my scrap box, I had to have it as the focal. Add some red glitter ornaments and a bow, silver glitter numbers, clear iridescent gems, and multi-color foil greetings sticker for sparkle and shine to make this card festive and celebratory!
