Asian Themed Happy Birthday Card

I made this Asian card for a technique lovers challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  Sabrina had a tutorial for us to make Asian lanterns.  All you need to do this is to have oval or round punches and a crimper. I used Art Neko Handmade Paper on the lanterns.   I used gold paper for the scalloped circle.  The image came from one of Art Neko Coin Envelopes.    I used an oval die to cut this cute boy out of the center of the bag.   I added the die cut gold Birthday Wishes for the finishing touch.

I want to wish each one of you a very Happy New Year.  Stay safe.  See you next year.
