The Year of the Dragon Challenge

The first of Flourishes’ January Release Week Noon Time Challenges is to be inspired by the colors of this beautiful dragon with rich shades of red, orange and even pink. I decided to use this beautiful Pattern Paper from Teresa Collins' "World Traveler" pad since it has the rich colors and a somewhat Oriental scroll design. It's perfect for my card....a very simple design with the Sentiment (from Flourishes "Cherry Blossoms") as the focus. Used Nesties Label 4 to cut layers of Copper and Gold Metallic CS and topped with Sentiment on Soft Sand CS stamped in Versamark and embossed with Red EP. Attached to base card of the Soft Sand and tied with a gold rope ribbon.

 According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which begins on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2013.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
I love hearing from you.
