Chinese New Year

It's not the Chinese New Year until the 26th January but I made this card for our friend who lives in the states, so I'll need to send it in a couple of weeks.
Next year is the year of the Ox, I downloaded the ox image from the internet and coloured with copics. The blossom tree is a peel-off and coloured with copics and sakura souffle pens. The sentiment was done on the PC, after a bit of research 'Xin nian kuai le' should mean 'Happy New Year', mounted sentiment onto red card then attached two peel-off lanterns.

I've already made a start with one of my new year resolutions, which was to be more organised with my card making and try to keep ahead, so a good start so, another is to take part in more challenges, which will be a good way to hopefully keep ahead with my cards.
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend xx
