A Chinese coin and an Asian newspaper stamp add interest to a blue card from Posh Impressions. A watercolor background softens this stamped card with dragonfly.

I love this card! I taught an entire class last year based on Chinese New Year. We made paper fortune cookies, cards, geisha cards, and bookmarks all with an asian theme! My colors were traditional red and black. Perhaps this year I wil take a leap and go to a pretty blue and white theme.. very pretty! httpcreatedbyu.blogspot.com200902asian-inspired-chinese-new-year-stamp.html
