Happy New Year's eve

Hi Stampers
I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year.  I hope that 2013 brings you much joy and even a little time to get crafty!  I thought that I would share with you a little project that I just finished for my mantle.  I actually saw an idea on Pinterest and made one for myself, usually I just peruse the ideas and never end up with enough time to make anything.  I feel like I'm off to a great start for the new year.  Let's get some crafting done!  whoohoo.

Here is a close up picture of the frames.
I just went around the house looking for some black frames that I had and then cut the paper to fit.  I used some old paper packs from CTMH called Silhouette, Creative Basics Silhouette, and the larger stripe is from Game On. I used the Cricut and AP cartridge to cut out the numbers from black cardstock at various sizes to fit the frames.  If I get a chance today I will make a banner that says "Happy".  I think I will re-arrange the rest of the mantle too, it needs something else. 
Happy New Years!

Here is an update. I was able to make the HAPPY banner using the Cricut AP cartridge cutting out the banner on black cardstock and then cutting it again 1/2" smaller out of the star paper from the Game On paper pack. Then I cut the starburst shape out of Bamboo cardstock and then again 1/2" smaller using the Colonial White cardstock. I used my Chocolate Alphabet stamps and stamped each letter on the colonial white starburst shape and the added three clear sparkles to each letter. The Colonial White is popped up with 3-D foam squares. I threaded them on black organza ribbon with a clear button between each letter. Here are the updated pictures.
