Chinese Collar

Japanese Influence Card for Aunty Rae's Birthday

I made this card for the birthday of one of my lovely sisters-in-law back in New Zealand. I had been looking for a way to use the cool Chinese fabric shirt topper that I had bought as part of a set from 'Lakeland'. I found a great paper in a 'Freebie' 6x6 paper pad that was given out with a card magazine purchase, that fitted the theme really well. I don't recall which magazine now, but the paper stack had several bold designs I initially was really stumped to know how to use. So was really pleased with this simple but striking pairing. The Chinese characters are from a wood-mounted stamp set also from 'Lakeland'. The characters represent 'Happiness, Love & Peace'.
