Happy New Year Card - Take Five

I made this card for my hubbie, with a special motif - the vine leaves and the grapes.
I wish him a year of Geffen (Geffen = vine, in Hebrew) which is an acronym of Gezunt, Parnusse and Naches, meaning Health, Prosperity and Pleasure from his family (in Yiddish).
The vine leaves were distressed with Stazon ink (Forest Green) and covered with a thick layer of papier glass finish for a 3D glazing. They were also glued 3D for extra dimension. The grapes are purple Dew Drops.
The purple background Canson paper has a pattern similar to a honeycomb. It is a Jewish tradition to eat honey on New Year's eve, hoping the new year will be as sweet as honey.
The edger punches are Martha Stewart's. The white CS was distressed with Ranger's ink (Dusty Concord). The green CS is canvas textured and the background paper with the pop-up butterflies is from a commercial booklet.
The sentiments say Shana Tova, meaning a happy new year in Hebrew.
I left enough space inside the card to write personal blessings for the new year.
I wish you all a happy new year, filled with joy, health and love!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly
