Chinese New Year will be here before you know it, so I decided to use today's sketch by making a card for my sweet DGD who just happens to be Chinese!! My card base is Lost Lagoon of which I attached a large mat of DP. The circle is DP matted on Pink Pirouette. My image & sentiment were stamped in Momento Black. I colored my image with a combination of Spectrum Noirs & Blendabilities. I used a Spice Gold Glitter Pen to add color & glitter to the collar, buttons and fan. I then used my new Spectrum Sparkle Markers to add a glittery sheen to he dress. After matting on Lost Lagoon and Pink Pirouette, I popped both the image & sentiment pieces. Last I attached some gold pearls. I have some really cute little girl Chinese stamps, but DGD is 11 now, so "really" Grammy, no baby stamps please!!!!!!!!! TFL ladies.

Granddaughters are wonderful indeed! It is the year of the monkey, and Danika was born in the year of the monkey, so will be especially celebrating this year!! I'm a snake, and wouldn't you just know it too............I absolutely despise snakes!! Oh well, DH is an ox and according to the signs, we are compatible :) Nice to know since we just celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary yesterday!!!! Thanks Anne for the kind comments on my card. Hugs to both you and Cathy.
