Happy Chinese New Year!

Good Morning Everyone!! I made this A2 size card for a challenge Emma is having over on her blog  My Creative Time. I had to do a search to find out more on the Chinese New Year. I learned that 2011 is the year of the rabbit and that the White Water Narcissus (Daffodil) is believed to bring good fortune for the year if it blossom's exactly on New Year's Day. I made this card with yellow daffodil's and of course a rabbit....Hope you enjoy!!
