I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Have things calmed down after the festivities or are you still in the middle of family celebrations?  We have our next set of visitors arriving tomorrow so I took the opportunity to get a bit of crafting in today!

I made this card inspired by the photo over at Inkspirational:

I went for a fairly literal interpretation as I loved the cityscape and dramatic purple fireworks.  The cityscape die is from Mama Elephant and is layered up several times.  The sky is blended from distress inks and the fireworks are silver embossed using a discontinued set of stamps from Banana Frog.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.

Here is the inspiration photo:

I will also link up at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.

I hope you like it and are looking forward to a fab new year :)

Thanks for stopping by!
