On this second day of the lunar new year I'm also sharing the second of my guest design project for Lowri McNabb's blog. I used Amy Tangerine supplies and softened up the colour palette with the addition of light peach and yellow - traditionally auspicious colours for chinese new year.
Continuing with the challenge to incorporate ribbons creatively into my cards, I gathered a yellow chevron from May Arts into a ruffle. Then for an even more casual feel, I pinched sewing thread into a ball and secured a few loops beneath the paper layers.
In the main photo is one of my unsuccessful attempts at festive baking. The almond cookies taste yummy but don't look anywhere near pretty enough to serve up to guests. I think it'll be just family who'll be eating them.
Wishing everyone who celebrates, a very happy Year of the Snake !
