Happy Chinese New Year

Good Morning, my card today is for Rainbow Lady's Challenge - The Year Of The Dragon.   The image is from an unmounted plate by Chocolate Baroque, the strip was made using a Judikins cube. I stamped everything with Versamark and embossed with WOW Gold Sparkle embossing powder.  The sentiment is from an old SeeDees set and going by the image in the box I think it says Happy New Year, but am not too sure.  The tassel and coin both come from my stash.  I suppose really I should have used red and gold, as  I think red in China is considered lucky, but I didn't have any red card in my offcuts box.

I am also entering my card into Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge as all the pieces of black and gold card came from my off cuts box.
