Chinese Good Luck (CCEE1211, QFTD104)



This is actually for three challenges. First, the CCEE Stampers Challenge is to add an international flair to your card with language, image or embellishment. I used the CB Mandarin Screen EF and a punched out Chinese symbol for Good Luck. The queen for a day is mepylant. Melina's gallery isn't huge, but it's packed full of beautiful projects. I was inspired by her Patterned paper pieces card that she did for a Sketch Challenge. Finally, over at Totally Stampalicious, the challenge is all about flowers. Using the MS Hydrangea punches, I punched, sponged and embossed the blooms. I used the SU! Clear Circle Die for the circle and 1-3/8" Circle Punch for the Chinese Symbol. The Chinese symbol was sent to me by Tater. She sent me several so I'll have some for future use. Thanks for stopping by!!

This is beautiful Carroll, These colors just make this card pop!

OT. I was looking at your split coast Gallery, and enjoyed seeing pics of your craft room. I am in the process, of clearing EVERYTHING out of my craft room. A hugh challenge for me. (need to fix water damaged ceilings, etc). I wanted to ask you if you could tell me the size of your craft room?

This is such a pretty card. It's a shame that the stamp manufacturer could not manage to get the character correct. Such a pet peeve of mine!
