Dream Schemes-Bubbly Hearts

 The holiday season is almost over for another year, and as we prepare to ring in a new year, bright with hope and promise, I still find it necessary to celebrate the year of 2010. It's brought several changes to my life...some good, some bad, some fun, and some sad. Our Thursday Dream Scheme for this week was to celebrate "Love in the New Year". Each year of our lives is all the more enriched by those we love. My post today features a bottle of the bubbly (the real stuff or sparkling cider...your choice), a representation of all celebrations. My bottle is created from acetate. I paste-embossed in white "Heart Whimsy" on the "bottle", and in glossy black on the gold "label". The "champagne" was glitter paper, with a few "bubbles" punched out, and Dot Sparkler stickers adhered at the top of the bottle. The acetate bottle was popped up off the surface of the elegant black linen card for effect. The foil and cap at the top were created from Nesties. A clear sticker sentiment, tulle, ribbon, and a fun corsage pin from Dreamweaver finishes the card. Of course, this design is perfect to celebrate the New Year, or for a wedding, anniversary, birthday...any special event in someone's life. Dreamweaver has a wonderful variety of heart stencils to fit any occasion. Pull out your stencils and play along! Be sure to post your creation with a link to Dreamweaver's "Dream It Up" blog. We love to see your creations as well! Check out what the rest of the team has come up with to celebrate "Love in the New Year".
