New Challenge at KAH-wink-E-dink!

This week at KAH-wink-E-dink, we have a new challenge up! It's a fun one- Make your own Embellishments! I had a blast this past week playing with Polymer Clay, so this weeks challenge I'm using another polymer embellishment that I made!

I bought some 'coins' when I visited China 13 years ago for the Hong Kong Reunification celebration. They are supposed to be symbolic of Good Luck and I have given away so many, that I now only have one or two left! Well, I didn't want to use the actual coins on my cards, since I was running out of them but also because they are also very heavy. So what else could I do? I decided to make them out of Polymer Clay! I hope you like the results!

This card is apropro for and may have been entered into the following challenges:
