Happy Newt Year!!!

You read it right, it's not a typo, I said "Happy NEWT Year".  The inspiration (and image and sentiments) come from Hambo Stamps, and the first Hoedown challenge of the new year is to make a New Year's card using Reptile digi image (or any Hambo image) with sentiment and something NEW.
I got a goody bag of some really awesome stickers for Christmas from my son along with some other goodies, and the glass of champagne is a perfect fit with my newt's celebratory attitude.  I made a side stair step card, in that half the card is flat and the other half is like a set of stairs.  I attached some leftover patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Christmas Stack to a textured cardstock base after scoring and cutting the design.  Next I colored my Hambo image and shined him up with a little Stickles.  I used two of the three sentiments that comes with the image.  Finally, I added the NEW STICKERS; one of a champagne glass, and the other in the back of presents stacked high.
Now it's time for a toast: 
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
