New Year Fireworks

I have a 'Happy New Year' card to share today...it was a requested make, and as I'm not at home and have a very edited collection of my stash with me, this is what I came up with! I created a firework display using Hero Arts stamps (the sentiment and smallest 'firework' are from the 'Sentiments' set), and hand drawn fireworks (done using a Versamark Ink pen), which I heat embossed using WOW embossing glitters (I used Metallic Gold Sparkle, Fool's Gold, Emerald City, Magical Mauve and Coral Reef). I used Lawn Fawn and Die-namics dies to cut the hills and grass from snippets of green card, then added some little critters to watch the display (from the 'Wish Upon a Star' set by Lawn Fawn), which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut out.
