Even Ants Ring in the New Year!

Good Morning! And it's a happy morning because it's the 5th of the Month and that means it's time for another Doodle Pantry Challenge! For the challenge I decided to use Laurie Wilson's new Doodle Pantry "Disco Ants" for a "Happy New Year" card. I've never made a "Happy New Year" card before as I've never had any artwork suitable for one, but now I do and so do you! You can find "Disco Ants" at the Doodle Pantry store here. I hope you have a chance to play along and you'll find plenty of other images to use if you'd rather not play with the ants...but I love coloring them...they are so whimsical! If you do play along, you receive the "New Year's Birdie" FREE just for participating in the challenge, and one lucky winner will receive a $10.00 coupon toward any Doodle Pantry store purchase!

Pictured below is a close-up of the ants on the disco ball as well, as the interior of the card showing the coordinating papers and design.
