Asian Theme

This week I thought I would use some of the Asian products that have been left on the shelf for too long. The sketch that I used is from Card Patterns.


The patterned paper is from Hanko Designs. The Cherry Blossoms (Hanko) and the Fan (Luni Stamps) were embossed with gold embossing powder.  A Marvy gold metallic calligraphy pen was used on the edges of the black flowers (Prima).  The metal fan was found in the jewelry department at JoAnn's. Floss and ribbon from my stash.

Here is the sketch that was used to design this card.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
