Asian Best Wishes

Here is a couple of cards, recreating a card that I developed for our son's girlfriend on her birthday last month.  I always feel that family members should get a brand new card that I've never made for anyone else before.  Sometimes that puts a little pressure on me, LOL.  Maybe I should reconsider that...!



The base and inside panels are a shimmery purple and silver CS from DCWV's At Home & The Four Seasons packs - they are lovely.

Sizzix XL Movers & Shapers Windows die was used to cut the window panes and SU's Lots of Tags die was used for the sentiment.  All images are heat embossed with Rangers black EP: sentiment & Gingko branch are SU.  Inside panels are from a Fiskars set of Asian stamps.  Best Wishes is popped up.













The inside panels use the same papers and black EP.  I rather like how these turned out!  Only problem is that I've used all of that wonderful shimmery purple paper out of the pack. Isn't that how it always goes?  Thanks for stopping by and thank you for leaving your comments!  It's always a treat for me to read your feedback.
Blessings to you!

Very pretty! I always hoard my favorite dp and wonder why - I am proud you use yours! Would look grand in pink or light green too!
