A Chinese sentiment

Good morning folks, a simple share before my another scheduled post gets published.
Yesterday afternoon I did some coloring, I chose the digi stamp from Aurora Wings, I won this 2 years back. I used zig markers to add color, mainly shades of blues and green for the leaves.
I decided to stamp the sentiment in Chinese. Some of you who follow me on Facebook, already know that my cards are up on sale in a Department store here in Macau, so I thought of making one with Chinese sentiment, I think the locals might get bit interested with it! I am living here for almost 9 years now, and Macau is like home to me, and I am part of the Government art website, so my way of giving back. Let's see, what kind of response I get, after I send the cards with Chinese sentiments to the store!!

OK, back to the card again. After I finished coloring, I fussy cut only the top, and created a panel to add to the base. I scored the panel, and added a blue glittery paper strip, and used foam adhesives to add to the base.
A few gold jewels to finish off. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant - lunar extras, it means - wish you prosperity in English.
I love this card!

Here is a closer look at the colored pansies, I love these stamps!
