As promised, I'm back with a card for today's noon-time challenge. Today's challenge is based on this inspiration image:
HOW TO PLAY: According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which begins on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2013. So, what does this predict for 2012? Success and Happiness! To play, simply be inspired by the colors of this beautiful dragon with rich shades of red, orange and even pink. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCJANRW1. You have until Friday, January 13th at 5 PM EST to enter. Once you are done with your creation, be sure to link up to this post using our inlinkz widget. You need to do that in order to be eligible!

I was totally inspired by the intense reds and golds in this image so first of all I stamped the heart and a sentiment from the set on red card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with gold fine detail embossing powder. Then I cut it out with my Grand Calibur and a Classic Heart Nestabilities die. I used gold metallic card stock and some gold cord to "tie" it all together, all on a base of Classic Ivory card stock. Sorry for the pun :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope to see you at the challenge!
