Asian Birthday

Hi there 🙂 This card is to commemorate a very special day…..Ching-Chou Kuik’s birthday!!! We are having a special extra challenge with Birthdays as the theme over at our Facebook group in honor of this occasion. Hopefully you can join us for an extra chance to win some of Ching-Chou’s gorgeous images 🙂 I used Lantern Night for my card. I colored her up with my Copics and added a few small accents with both white and gold pens.

I had some special papers that I received about 15 years ago in a swap with a partner from China that I was saving for just the right project….I decided that this was it!! Thankfully, I thought of this paper before I started coloring, so I was able to match and coordinate the color scheme of the image!!! I also had some brand new Asian inspired dies that just HAD to be used on this….I cut them from a muted gold paper, then again from a dark blue CS, so I could inlay some of the pieces. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with gold, matted it with the dark blue and this card was done 🙂
