Simple, New, and mixed with a little Old, Yea ME!!!

Creating simple cards to start off my New Year. I am using a new Close To My Heart Stamp set, "Happy Birthday Cricut Artiste"  Bundle collection-Z1686. 
My inspiration came from my Wishes Card Confidence book. 
I am using scraps of old papers and combining with  new. 
As you know, I do not do many cards. I have gotten better and hope 
to improve as 2013 takes shape in my crafty world.
I used the tearing technique, sponged the edges in Chocolate Brown ink-Z2111. Layered the papers onto a folded 4" x 4.5"  white daisy card stock base. Placed a 2.5"x 2.5" white square in the center.
The tag was stamped with stamp set A Typeface-A1117
Inked the Chipboard letter in Outdoor Denim-Z2140
edged in the Chocolate ink
then tied Hemp around the upper extension of the letter 
to hang the tag from. 
I added some Bling by adding metal stars left over 
from another project.
Here is another version using the same products and tools with a touch of my CTMH Glitter Glitz Gel (Love the stuff-doesn't run & the glitter doesn't rub off) outlining the upper paper tear. Also the Stamp set used here for the sentiment is Be Happy-B1374
Hope you enjoy the cards. Love to get your crafty comments on what you think of my first two cards for this year.
