This week's Bloggers Challenge is a color challenge based on this image. My first reaction was that the image and colors reminded me of Oriental Art. I have a book/CD with lots of Oriental backgrounds, so I went to it to see if there was anything close to the colors of the challenge. I narrowed down the choice and thought that this background was a great match for the color challenge. Then I did an Internet search for the characters for "Happy New Year" in ChineseI liked this image since it has the characters and the English and Chinese translation with them. I die cut the sentiment panel and a backing panel from lilac metallic paper. I stamped (Heartfelt Creations) and die cut (HC/Spellbinders) the flower on a light blue metallic paper. After adhering the pieces together to a green card base, I added some hollographic bling. It gives a really shiny bling to the card.
I am also entering this card into these challenges:
