Something "New" for another blog challenge

This card was entered into the The Crazy Challenge, I made this for a good friend who has just moved house. I used a wavy black card and stamped the Chinese words which mean, 1st is Happiness 2nd is Harmony 3rd is Peace and the 4th stands for Tranquillity which I believe everyone one wants in a new place. The Temple is from a set of clear oriental stamps that I purchased from e-bay along with the Chinese lettering used as the background. I then finished the card off with red glittery boarder peel-offs, a bow, dragonfly's and flowers all of which are stash that I have acquired from various places over the years. The final touch to bring it all together are peel-offs  "A New Home". This card has yet to be sent but I know the lady who it is for will really appreciate it as she is a crafter too.

Thank you ladies for your uplifting comments, I am my worse enemy when it comes to my designs but this one I was truly happy with straight away as I too love every thing oriental. I am also looking forward to entering many more challenges as my studying will allow. Take care Alison x
