Muse Card 147

Back again with a fun card for Chinese New Year. I normally don't make cards for CNY but after seeing Mama Elephant's Lunar Animals release last year, I couldn't wait to ink up the stamp sets! I've based my card on the current Muse Card Challenge - Michele Ferguson, and decided to make two cards at the same time. I've stamped the chinese character for 'Fortune' upside down as this usually happens in households during CNY. The character upside down sounds like 'Fortune has arrived/is upside down in the house'. I love both the Lucky cat (although this is probably more Japanese than Chinese) and the cute monkey (Year of the Monkey this year). I'm also adding this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New (Chinese New Year).
Thanks for dropping by!
