Happy Chinese New Year

Today the Chinese New Year starts and this year is the 
year of the rat. Goodbye year of the pig.

The Rat:
If you are born in the year 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984,
1996 of 2008 than you are a rat and rats are believed to be
very industrious and thrifty, dilligent and positive.

Of course I wanted to make a card for the new year and I came across
 a wonderful tutorial here by Frenchie. The tutorial is HERE.
It is a tent card.

I added a little of my own.
The heart is a stamp by Michael Strong
and the sentiment is from my stash.
On the side of the rat I added the flower stamp by Michael Strong.
The are embossed in silver. I was inspired by seeing this decoration
when I googled for the rat image.

Thank you for looking
