CCEE Stampers Challenge in January and here is her challenge for this week....
Chinese New Year is celebrated on January 23rd this year and it is the Year of the Dragon … so this week either use a Dragon on your card or find out what animal relates to your birthday year in the Chinese Zodiac and create a card using that animal.
I thought I did not have a dragon stamp (late discovered that I did), so I went with the animal that relates to my birthday which is an ox. Of course, I do not have an ox stamp. So....what to do??!!! Well, I did a search on the computer and came up with this clip art which I just love.
Something you may not know is that I love papercuttings. I have many from Poland from when I visited there. I also have some from China which friends have bought me on their travels. Well, this clip art happens to be in the style of a Chinese paper cut, so it caught my eye and I decided to go with it.
The sentiment is the only thing I stamped. It is from a retired SU set. This sketch is one I remember from a challenge a while ago.
Now.....take a 'trip' to the CCEE blog to see the fabulous and celebratory cards related to the Chinese New Year. Brandi Wiggins is joining the team this week.
