Chinese New Year

Hi Everyone, when I saw this happy dog, I knew I had to play with him, isn't he adorable and as it's nearly Chinese New Year I used that as the subject for him.
Image - a freebie from Michael Strong digi stamps
coloured in PS
All Chinese elements - Marisa Lerin Pixelscrapper
I changed the colour of the Dog New Year character background paper in PS
The screen - I made a shape out of the image in Silhouette, cut out of red mirror card.
 I also used print and cut for the dog and gave him another layer for his head,  all laid onto a gold mirror card background  and a few gems for a bit of opulence.
3D gloss for his eyes, nose and tongue. 
the red layer character reads - good fortune
the yellow layer character reads - double happiness
I'm really pleased how this turned out, hope you like it too.

This is brilliant in design and I guess I can safely assume it's the Chinese year of the dog?

What fabulous creativity you've got going on with this wonderful Chinese-themed card. Aren't you clever to think of the Chinese New Year symbols and get the mileage from this great dog image. (Love the dimensional head). Great oriental look to the cut out & dimensional screen, and I'm loving all the red & sparkle on this one. I just love how you combine the PS and the cameo to come up with such super cards! TFS &Hugs
