It’s Time… for a Noon Time Challenge! New Flourishes Release Hop

 According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2012 is the Year of the Dragon, which begins on January 23, 2012 and ends on February 9, 2013. So, what does this predict for 2012? Success and Happiness! To play, simply be inspired by the colors of this beautiful dragon with rich shades of red, orange and even pink. Here is my card, I used Bronze metallic paper for the base and used Bo Bunny 'Indian Summer'  Collection for the 2nd layer. Then I cut Only Orange paper by Stampin'Up for the 3rd layer and added another layer of Bo Bunny. I cut out orange glitter paper using Spellbinders 'Lotus Pendant'  then I cut out another  pendant using Spellbinders 'Iron Works Motiffs'  using Bo Bunny 's Indian Summer. I added some glue to the pendant and then used Buttered Yam Glitter Ritz glitter. Then I stamped the wreath using Flourishes set called 'Wreath of All Seasons' using black crafter's ink and emboss using clear EP by Clearsnap. I colored the image using Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals using oranges, pinks, reds and purples. I cut it out and placed it on Melon Mambo paper by Stampin'Up. Applied glue using a quickie glue pen and added some  Plum Berry glitter by In The Making Enterprises. I added a red corduroy button for the middle and again added some Plum Berry glitter. Using a Quinn Flourishes by Memory Box dies I cut  out a flourish using Melon Mambo paper  and again added some Plum Berry glitter. I stamped saying from the set called 'Falling Leaves' by Flourishes using black crafter's ink and emboss using clear EP by Clearsnap on shimmery white paper.  I cut this out using  a smaller pendant from the same Spellbinders 'Iron Works Motiffs'. I added Tangerine and Warm Red Fluid Chalk by Clearsnap by using white foam tips to tone down the white paper. Added Pink basic pearls as shown.
