Gung Hay Fat Choy Take 2

Good Morning lovely bloggers! I hope you're all well!
Gung Hay Fat Choy!
Happy New Year!
I just stopped by to share another Chinese New Year card with you!
Today is officially Chinese New Year!
2013 is the Year Of The Water Snake!
I know, he's in a tree but he's suspended over water!
Check out the koi carp & the water lillies on the background paper!

I used the image Ringo from Just Inklined.

I coloured Ringo with Promarkers & Flexmarkers & a touch of liqiud chalk in the sky,
cut him out with a Circle Nestie then inked the edges with a liquid chalk inkpad.
I added a scalloped circle matt & some punched leaves which I embossed
to give some dimendsion.
The papers are from my stash, not sure who they are by as
they have been there for a very long time!
I added some twine & 3 orental coin charms!
The sentiment was made on my pc & attached with foam tape.

I decorted the inside just a little too! The punched border
was done using a Matha Stewart border punch.
Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great day!
