Chinese New Year

It's that time of year again when Neet challenges you to make something to celebrate the Chinese New Year. which this year is the year of the horse, but panic not Neet says you can use any image as long as it oriental/Asian
 
An ATC now I'm not a paper person but  I do love oriental papers and I bravely cut some to make the border, the little horse is from a See-D set from many years ago
 

 
A card with the winkle free technique in marmalade and festive berry and a stamp from Non Sequitur
 
 
Now pop on over to Artful Times for more inspiration from Chrissie and Neet

The position of your horse on the second card and the colours you used give some serious oomph to your card! The horse seems to be actually moving...

Great makes, Von! The Marmelade and Festive Berry background is perfect for Chinese New Year (which I always see as red for some reason.
