Let's kick off the new year with some challenges....

Happy New Year!!!
This is post #1 of 2 for today...this one is all about the challenges!

On Friday's, I play in both the Friday Fun Challenges and Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge. This week, they both happened to have the same challenge...
create a card using silver and black.

So I created a silver and black card (with a slight touch of red) using a Paper Makeup Stamp, Penelope. The quote I thought was something good to go along with New Year's Resolutions and it comes from the Dream Big kit.

It's kind of hard to read on here, but it says, "To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan but also believe." ~Anatole France

And now the details about each individual challenge...
