A New Year

Hello Friends!  Today marks the first day of the lunar calendar, and here's wishing all my Chinese friends A Happy New Year!!  I had a great time with my friends last night and the celebration continues for the next 15 days... not exactly, but there'll be lots of lunches and dinners with friends.  That's how the Asians celebrate - there's always lots of food.

Last night I was thinking I should make a card with an attitude for today's Unity FWF.  I just love how fun this image is ( Jo {Fashionista}) - she is such a spunky girl.  I picked the lovely quote by Helen Keller (Itty Bitty Poppy Bundle) to go with it.  Love the sentiment and the message behind it.  I guess we shouldn't let the world dictate who we are, but to find ourselves and let our experiences in life change us for the better.

I wish you can see all the shimmer around the edges of the stamped image, from the distressing with Delicata gold ink pad.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers.

Here's a closer view of the sentiment:


I hope you'll have a great weekend, and I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for visiting me.
Kary
