2 in 1 today

I've talked about Case Study challenge before, most of the time I don't enter it's just not my style. I I did a while back cuz their muse (Jill Foster) is amazing. The current inspiration Dawn Woleslagle did a cute card so I decided to participate.

Here is the inspiration.

and here is my card.

I've been wanting to do an Asian card for awhile. What little furniture decor we have managed to get has an Asian flare to it. Who knows why a German and a half Mexican would be drawn to the Asian culture but we are.

The stamp is from Fiskars... Fiskars makes great cutting tools in both the paper crafting and the quilting world. I dare say their stamps are not as good. It was worth a try. The flowers are colored with Copic's. The paper is from a set I got at Joann's called Far East.

I'm really happy with how this card turn out so I'll be entering it into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge as well. Sorry to make this short I'm helping my store Stamp Fever participate in the So Cal Shop Hop. I forgot how much work retail is. But the good thing is i'll get paid in products :D
