Happy New Year card

Hi all - and happy New Year! I haven't posted anything since December 16, mojo left me. And with that and limited time I didn't finish all Christmas cards I needed, so I'm making a few New Year's cards as well.
This is my first, using a Dienamics cityscape die and DIs, brushos, gesso and gold EP to make the sky.
I don't have a New Year's greeting stamp, so I went with a best wishes stamp and I die cut 2017 and attached it to the black die cut piece. Stars were made with a MB stencil.

I'd like to enter this card in:
Allsorts - #396 Something New (New Year, new sentiment stamp)
Inkspirational - #125 Photo Inspiration
Creatalicious Challenges - #106 - Anything Goes + Option Happy New Year / Wishes
Glitter n Sparkle - #220 New Beginnings

Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year.

Happy New Year Pia!! I wish you all the best!
Your card looks great with this mixed media background, great dimensions and colouring! It seems that your mojo is here again!! Adorable contrast by the silouettes and the blue shades with gold! Great choice of colours!

I've been waiting to get to this card... i love the city-scape. It seems so hopeful in these "strange" political times in America. The colors are just right, and the golden stars brighten the night-sky. Mojo left me about the same time it left you. Finally this weekend I got into my supplies and USED THEM ALL. Wasn't overjoyed wth anything I made, but i just kept playing. It's been weeks and I'm determined to make some decent cards! Definitely inspired since catching up with you!
