Step Card for Chinese New Year, 2013

My friend, Hetty, from CraftChaos inspired me to make a Chinese New Year card using Michael Strong's free digital download. I followed Hetty's instructions saving the digital download to my computer, then printed it on my home printer.
The purple cardstock base is 5-1/2 x 12 inches, and scored at 2, 4 and 8 inches. I used colored pencils to color the image. The Chinese characters are from Mike's blog. Printed them and the English text, Matisse font with my printer on card stock.
