Live Long and Prosper in the New Year!

I grew up on Disney movies and Star Trek. I'm tickled that my kids are also growing up with Star Trek! And now I get to craft with one of my fave quotes from Mr. Spock!
The hand symbol, "Live Long and Prosper," is my inspiration for my New Year's card today. The digi, released by Squigglefly this month, is from Lynne Stansbery, one of my fave artists (so it's a win-win situation). She draws a lot of digi images using hands and they are all so realistic and touching-I know, as I have most of them! LOL
Anyway, I thought the hand gesture deserved a proper background, so I pulled a scene from some Star Trek free clipart for the background. It's not very apparent in my photo, but Spock's hand has a touch of green, as every Trekkie knows he is an alien from the planet Vulcan. The ship in the background, the Enterprise, is one on which I've taken many voyages throughout the years. Although captains may have changed, Vulcans are long-lived, and Mr. Spock has been known to make an appearance or two on each new series or movie.
But back to my card...Squigglefly has a new challenge this week, and it is also one of my favorites--ANYTHING GOES! So, crafters, have your way with your supplies, and remember, if you use a Squigglefly image, you'll be in the running for free digis. Good luck, and have fun!!
