As the custom color for Chinese New Year is red, this card is no exceptional. This year Chinese New Year is the Year of the Rabbit. Thus, rabbit is used in this card.

Fook is from the patterned paper, got it quite sometime back. I just use a puncher to punch it out. You can get some chinese letterings from Hero Arts. Check their digi stamps..
