DCM Crossing Continents & A sketch

This weeks dare was set by Saffa. We were to make a card to celebrate a festival from another culture. I chose Chinese New Year as I have such gorgeous Chinese paper! The Chinese Lady is printed on watercolour paper to create the same textured look as the papers used from the DCWV Far East.
The sketch is from Dawn.
Pop over her blog & take a look at her sketches for some inspiration. When I saw this it was just perfect. So big Thank You to Dawn.
