Happy Chinese New Years - Year of the Rabbit and Lantern Rin Card

I bought this paper at Impress months ago to paper piece those cute little Chinese dolls stamps from Hero Arts.  And as you can see, that never happened, lol.  They're all still sitting there in the original packing and un-inked. So I decided to use Rin instead and be festive for New Years.  My card makes me miss my mama. 

Paper: Impress, CTMH, and SU
Stamps: Sparkle Creations, sentiment is A Muse
Prima Flowers, Pearls, Copics, and Crystal Stickles

This is the only holiday I celebrate 3 times {Hmong, American, and Chinese} and I love celebrating all of them!  I hope you all have a great Thursday!  Grey's and Private Practice are on tonight and yeah - no more re-runs!
