Welcome To Paper Cutz Challenge # 120

Welcome to Paper Cutz Challenge # 120
"It's a Brand New Year!"  Make a card, LO or craft project for the new year, using any colors you'd like.

For my project I used

Fancy Frames # 7 cut at 5.5"
My picture was 4" x 6"- I tried a 4" & 6" cut but neither worked so I used 5.5" and had to cut a bit off from the bottom of the picture for it to fit.
I made the flowers using the Art Philosophy cartridge pg.  68 font/shift key, cut at 1.5" & 2"
The 2012 was cut from Lyrical Letters, Jumbo key, pg 54, 55 & 63 at 1.5"
