Asian Inspired

Happy New Year! I have a card today for the Ways to Use It challenge to include silver somewhere on your card and one of the New Years Eve challenges to make something Eastern Influenced.

I stamped the bamboo with Stazon and embossed it with clear, then sponged the background. The butterfly is colored with Copics and cut out.

I'll be back tonight with a card using one of Melanie's sets in honor of her big blogaversary celebration. Don't forget to hop on over for a chance at some fabulous candy.

All the images above are by Unity from either Butterfly Beauty or Gratitude = Joy.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!!
