Asian Influence

I'm late tonight, which means this is going to be short.

My card was inspired by this card on the Paper in the Works blog. The red square was created with a stencil, sponge, and Cranberry ink. The rest, I think, explains itself.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Cranberry, Black, and Bamboo cardstock; 7gypsies Sushi Journey 6x6-inch paper variety pack; Black ink pad; Clear Dollar Stamps Asian Plants stamp set; Black mini brads; 1 and 1-1/4 inch circle punches; Piercing tool; Stampin' Up Piercing Guide and Mat; 3M foam mounting tape.

There isn't much to say about my day other than Grandpa and I had a little dose of unexpected joy earlier this evening. With a doctor's appointment taking longer than she'd anticipated, Bjorn and Mathias' mommy called and asked us to pick them up at daycare this afternoon. We had an hour with them, just long enough to hear about their day and gather up a few precious hugs and kisses.

On that happy thought, I'm going to put myself to bed with the new Papercrafts Stamp It! Cards magazine that I picked up at the store tonight. I hope your day was a good one, and as always, thanks for stopping!

Beautiful card! I think I could make something close with the intrinsic backgrounds set? I'm going to try it!

Thank you for your kind words on my new blog - I am so inexperienced, and nervous about this blogging thing. I want my blog to be as good as yours is - and that really is a lofty goal!!!!!
