"Imagination Monday" Chinese New Year

Well hello friends!

Thank you very much for stopping by. I am very excited that I was able to use my Imagine again today. I have been a bad Mom and Negleted it. =( So today it was "Imagine Day"

Ok on to my card. Our Friend Emma My Creative Time is having the first "Imagination Monday" of this year. Her and Sarah Pink Cricut get together and host Imagine challenges. This Monday's challenge was to create a "Chinese New Year" project using your Imagine. Anyone that doesn't have an Imagine is also welcomed to join.

Ok all I want to say is SARAH and EMMA you sure CHALLENGED me today! Boy was I going a lil crazy trying to figure out what to cut. (Since I don't have any cart that goes with this theme) Well while pondering for an hour I remembered of a book that I read to my students a couple years ago and it talked about the Chinese New Year. At the end of the story a little boy goes out to the celebration and there are dragons and FIREWORKS!!! Whoo hoo Fireworks is what I decided to cut out. I knew I had that =)

Here is my card. Hope you enjoy this one, Thanks Emma and Sarah for this challenge!!!


So what I decided to do was to add an Asian element to the card
to somehow show the theme
I googled "Gung Hei Fat Choi" script and that was to difficult
to try to replicate. So while browsing I found this phrase.
It means "JOY"

I used Black Acrylic paint to paint phrase
Sprinkled MS Onyx glitter


Fireworks cut @ 1.5
Shadow  flood filled black
Used Hopscotch cart for yellow background paper color
and patterns
Gold Stickles for POP!!!
 I embossed the paper with the Devine Swirls and added stickles to it also. I wanted to give the illusion as if you were looking up at the sky and seeing all the wonderful sparkle the Fireworks let out! What I plan to do on the inside is find a Happy New Year Stamp and stamp it!

Toodles!!! Have a great day!
