Lunar New Year

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something using just the three (or more) elements selected.

Today's festivities are in celebration of Lunar New Year which is celebrated on Friday, February 12th this year.  The challenge runs from January 22-February 5.

For my Lunar New Year themed project, I used: red, lanterns, gold and foil paper from the inspo list. I used Mama Elephant's Sakura Creative Cuts for the frame, branch, flowers and lanterns, and Mama Elephant's Lunar Sayings stamp set for the sentiment. Both stamps and dies are brand new (to me). The frame is cut from gold foil paper. The other die cuts are done with 80# Neenah Solar White card stock and colored with Copic Markers. The clouds were stenciled with the Cloud Edger from A Colorful Life Designs. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110# card stock.

Beautiful, Stephanie! I love the cherry blossoms against the clouds. The lanterns are such a rich shade of red. Of course, the gold foil frame sets off the entire card!
