Happy New Year, Chinese Style

This is one of those cards that loses everything in the photo.  Granted, it may not be my best work but it looks a lot better in real life.  This paper is such a fun and vibrant print but the colors look dull in the photo.  Enough complaining from me.  I'm grateful that you've taken the time to visit.  I know this is a crazy time of year for most people, so thanks for spending some of your precious time with me.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Stampin' Up "Kimono Kids"
ink - Stampin' Up "Basic Black"; Memento "Teal Zeal" for sentiment
paper - Stampin' Up "Island Indigo" and "Lucky Limeade" card stock; My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade" card stock; Graphic 45 "Bird Song Collection - Cherry Blossom and Enlightenment" dsp
miscellaneous - Stampin' Up markers; Spellbinders "Oval" dies; Stampin' Up "Modern Label" punch; ribbon roses; mini brads
Here's the challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon #62- Anything Goes with Ribbon
Polka Doodles week 51- Happy New Year
Card Makin' Mamas - It's the Holidays
Creative Card Crew #26 - Chinese New Year
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again. 
Wishing everyone a blessed and happy holiday, whatever holiday it is that you celebrate.


  1. Chris, this is so cute! Fabulous fussy-cut image to go with that wonderful paper! Love it!
    And, as to your suggestion that I run away, I think I might just do that. I have to return in time to go to Hawaii, though. ;^) Thanks for the laugh! :^)
