A Card for the New Year

Is there anything else that is observed around the world at the same time other than New Year's Eve? That's what I was thinking when I made this card.  I know the Chinese New Year occurs later in January and the Jewish New Year is celebrated in September, but those each surround a distinctive heritage. The 31st of December is unique.

Here's why.  The change in the calendar year dictates commerce, influences politics, identifies a birth, anniversary, or graduation, welcomes decades, centuries and millennia, encourages resolutions, and above all – bears all hope.  My first handmade prayer of 2015 is for peace on Earth. 


Card Details: Finished card is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2 " folded black card stock; silver metallic card stock is cut to allow 1/8" border; stamp earth (Hero Arts) and "happy 2015" (Stamping Up) on white card stock with ocean blue ink (Stamping' Up); cut out and layer on blue swiss dot textured paper (Bazzill Basics/Marco's Paper); mount earth image on beaded circle die cut (Spellbinders) and adhere to silver card stock; use mounting tape to adhere sentiment to card front.
