Your score probably dropped because of the hard credit pull which was done to open the new account.  In addition, this new credit line had an effect on your average age of accounts.   You should see gradual improvement, depending on how you handle your credit lines that between 6 months to a year it could be back to where it was.   This is assuming you don't open additional lines, don't use the credit available on the prior credit card and work to reduce your overall debt.
