The Year of the Rabbit!


My daughter needed a Chinese New Year card for a friend so I combined a Kimono Kid with Fourth of July Fireworks to welcome the Year of the Rabbit.  Rabbits are amiable, neat and considered to be the most fortunate of all the animals. It is good to be a bunny!  I was born in the Year of the Ox  - determined, traditional, easy going and follows a routine.  That must be why I liked following Stamping411's sketch so much!  Think I will walk on the wild side and post it on The Paper Players Anything Goes Challenge as well!

You have done a fabulous job on this card, Linda!! We have a large Asian population in the Lower Mainland (Vancouver and surrounding cities) and I know they would love it! Darling image, well coloured and I love the "fireworks" in the BG. Gung hei fuc choi (Happy New Year in Chinese and more definitely spelled wrong LOL!)
