This was reasonably easy. The spirella took a bit of time. The Kokeshi doll and rabbits were cut on the Cricut. The bamboo and kanji have been embossed with Holiday Embossing Powder called (appropriately) "Chinese New Year."
It is for the following challenges;
By the Cute and Girlie - Use red + any other color - Red and black.
Cup Cake Craft Challenge - We would like to see Red.
Moving Along with the Times - To celebrate Chinese New Year the theme is "RED".
Paper Play - Create a card using a stamp - The kanji and the bamboo shoot.
Rainbow Lady - Chinese New Year, Year of the Rabbit.
Sew Many Challenges #42 - Anything Goes.
Stamping Vacation - No, No, Challenge - no tags.
The Stamp Man - Oriental Theme
