What's New? Challenge

The Art Impressions Design Team is back today with our first challenge of 2015!  It's called "What's New?"  It's a New Year, so we want to see you using something that's new... a new stamp that you've never used, maybe a new technique?  I'm using three new products on my card today - this cute little Zoo Baby elephant in the Dream Big Set (Sku#4533), some new Teresa Collins papers (I bought these before I even owned the Dream Big set, but knew that I'd be getting it soon...) and I broke open a brand new package of sequins that I've had for a few months but never used:
 This is the version that I ended up with... but I initially made him up without the sequins (I think that I might be embellishment challenged - I hummed and hawwed over the sequins for a good 10 minutes!)  I actually like both versions, but would like to know what you think?
The designers are all sharing our New Year's Crafting Resolutions today, too -  this year I really would like to develop my watercolouring skills more.  I received a set of brushes and a lovely set of watercolour pencils for Christmas that I hope to put to good use shortly.  I love my Tombow markers too, so will continue to play and learn with them as well.  An ongoing resolution of mine is to continue learning and trying new things with my Copic markers.  What are your crafting resolutions?  We would love to hear them, and see what new creations you come up with - you can link them up on the Art Impressions blog, here.
Copics used - Greys: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00
Pinks - R37, R35, R32, R30

Love them both! Sequins if you're giving it to a girl...plain for a boy. Your coloring is awesome!

Happy New Year, my Friend!
I like both cards, but am a wee bit partial to the sequins one.....lovin' the sequins these days.
Your crafting resolutions are great....gotta think more about some of my own.
