Rainbow Lady's Challenge # 138 - Chinese New Year

This weeks challenge celebrates Chinese New Year, the year of the Rabbit and is sponsored by the lovely Joanna Sheen. The New Year celebrations involve lanterns and firecrackers hence my image this week of two small boys lighting the fireworks and holding their ears. It comes from a Dover CD of Chinese images. I coloured with Promarkers and distressed with Fired Brick. The card itself is stamped with a lanterns image from Dee Gruenig which is embossed with gold. The sentiment is from Google clip art. I tried to keep to the traditional colours of red, black and gold.

Thank you for taking a look and I do hope that you will take a look at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog and join in with us this week to have a chance of winning the voucher from Joanna.
