Chinese New Year Blog Hop January 22nd-23rd

Year of the Dragon

Ni hao and welcome to the Chines New Year Blog Hop! This hop is in honor of Guan, the little boy April's family is adopting from Taiwan. To celebrate his culture, we want to share some Chinese-inspired projects with you! If you arrived here from Maria's Blog then you are in the right place! If you just joined us, please go back to April's blog to see everyone's amazing creativity!

For my last project to share with you on this hop is a card =D
I made the lantern paper piecing by taking a circle punch and cutting the yellow/Gold cardstock into strips. I highlighted the edges using a Copic marker and then arranged the strips on a black strip of cardstock paper. 

We have some great blog candy to offer from April Nourse and PSA Essentials. 

To be eligible, you must simply comment on each blog on each day's post. We'd love for you to become a follower of each of our blogs too. If you are on Facebook I would love to meet you and have you following along with me at my is the link:
