Gong Xi Fa Cai


Gong Xi Fa Cai! Or Happy New Year in English.

With Chinese New Year just two days away, I'm in a New Year mood and so I decided to do this layout with a photo of my two DD taken during Chinese New Year a few years ago. I thought this very oriental looking artsy.licious filigree paper from Chatterbox is so appropriate for this layout, and decided on a white background to make the reds in the layout really stand out. I then added on some black embellishments for definition.

Wishing everyone a very happy and prosperous Year of the Ox!
