Happy New Year


Challenges

Wild Orchid (67) - Anything Goes
Sunday Sketch & Stamp (142) - Sketch
All That Stickles (2) - Xmas Red

Tomorrow we will be celebrating the Chinese New Year (Year of the Snake), so naturally I have made a card for my son and daughter in law.  I followed the great sketch, having turned it first, and layered my base card with gold cardstock and some Han-Ji papers.  I found the image on the computer and added this after layering it.  Next I added some gold and red ribbon which I added a metal filigree topped with a gem.  I then attached some gold leaves and cherry blossom.  To finish off I added Xmas Red Stickles to the background paper and the snake's hat.  Although my insert is rather plain I have stamped a sentiment and some lanterns which I coloured with promarkers.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
