All Asian

Hello everyone,

Today's card was commissioned by a colleague whose boss is moving to Asia. She wanted a card with a distinct Asian feel - maybe I went just a titch overboard but I just couldn't help myself.

The printed paper is origami paper of unknown origin layered on Stampin' Up Basic Black and Ruby Red. The images and sentiment are Stampin' Up Asian Artistry. The flowers are painted with LuminArte Rose Gold, Ginger Peach, Lemongrass and Sweet Alfalfa Twinkling H2Os. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Licorice Opaques.

I'm so very, very happy with this card. I think it is just strikingly beautiful. I have a bit of a stash of origami paper that I love to use on these cards. It is fantastic paper to work with and when I can combine it with my favourite Twinkling H2Os, I'm one happy lady!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
