Emma's "Chinese New Year" Challenge! -Episode~149

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my page, hope you are doing well. I made this money envelope card for Emma Aguilar's "Chinese New Year Challenge" http://www.creativetimeforme.com/2011/01/imagination-monday-chinese-new-year.html
I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cart. Being that this will be the Year of the Rabbit or Year of the Hair I decided to use one with a bunny- I saw one I liked for the pose with hello kitty but it was a bear so I modified it... the one with the bear and welded some bananas for the "bunny ears" looks somewhat odd but oh well I still like the outcome. I was trying to go for Hello Kitty's friend My Melody but when I was done I realized I put her flower on the wrong side... oh well for that too. lol. For the background paper I used from my Far East stack I bough from Big Lots a couple of years back. For the gilded letters I used a technique from mybutterflykisses12 (that's her youtube username)
My version didnt come out as good as hers because I decided to see how it would look if I embossed it- so it looks beat up but the looks works with the theme- I think.Also The red envelope and flat card are from the Recollections line.





Oh yea some US currency will also embellish the flat card ;)

Thanks for checking out my blog.
