Designer Challenge - "NEW"

Today's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge is entitled "NEW."  We were to try something new to us -- new technique, new color scheme, new style.  What kind of card would be perfect for this challenge on this day?  A Happy New Year card, of course!  I incorporated several other "new" things besides "happy new year" -- a new technique I had seen Karen do (a double spinner card) as well as some new fireworks stamps (first time I've used them).

In case you haven't seen Karen's video on how to create this double spinner, here is a link to her YouTube video.  This is a close-up of my double spinner mechanism.

As you can see, the upper spinner mechanism is a trimmed-down version of the original spinner mechanism.

A fun element on this card is the pouring champagne, which was made with a small piece of embroidery floss.  

In addition to the Spinner Square Pop-Up die, my card included pennants from the Twist Panel Pop-Up set and balloons from the Explosion Pop-Up set.
