January Duel: A New Year

Hello out there.  I've certainly been MIA for a while...
It's the 15th and time for the Dueling Darlings on Split Coast Stampers to fire up their creativity and get dueling for 2018.
Laura Jean and I are the hosting this duel, and we thought that we'd take a bit of a different approach this round.
Instead of sending an image, we sent the month of January and asked each team to decorate the panel or cut out the month and incorporate it onto the front of their card.  They were encouraged to mark any of their significant birthdays, anniversaries, etc. on the month.
I encouraged the Dazzlers to go with a silver & black theme as it seems to be popular for New Year decorations.  But they are free to create anything that their Muse inspires!
Here's what I came up with:

I apologize for my unsteady hand.  I fell and injured it back in September and you can see I need to keep at my physical therapy!

No special dates in January for me so I highlighted New Year's Day and MLK Jr. Day.

Laura Jean, it was great working with you to host this round.  We make a great team!

Now I'm off to visit the Blogs of the other Darlings and admire their creations.

Wishing each and every one of you a healthy, peaceful and happy 2018!
