Chinese New Year at Sentimental Sundays


I hope you're all having a lovely weekend, I've been doing lots of crafting while hubby played footy :)  My plan to be more organised in everything including craft is working out so far & my DT card for Sentimental Sundays was finished in plenty of time (don't know if I can keep it up lol but I'm enjoying it while it lasts).  The challenge this week is Chinese New Year / Asian inspired.  I used some digi papers that were free from Cannon (I think) it was a while ago so they might not still be on there.  I made an origami kimono, stamped & embossed a dragon (which is a stamp I've had ages but rarely use so it was nice to ink it up) & finished off with flowers, ribbon pearls, peel off borders & the sentiments were found on Google (what would we do with out Google lol), I edged the card & sentiments with gold metallic rub-ons.  I hope you will join in the challenge (don't forget your sentiment) & if you need more inspiration why not check out the other DT members fantastic creations :)

The challenges:
The Stamp Man - Oriental
Oldie but Goodie - Fairies, mermaids, dragons or any other magical beings        
Lili of the Valley - Anything but Square    
Crafty Catz - Flowers
Fairy Knoll - Flowers
Craft Your Passion - Use 2 Patterned Papers
