Dancing "Kiyomi"

Happy Saturday All,
YAY, today was a very exciting day for me because I got to pick up my Sister Stamps at Island Scrapbooking.....got there just after the door opened.

Several nights ago, I started making this card so all I needed to do when I got my stamps was to ink up Kiyomi and place her onto the card. So here's my first card.

It's Obon Dance season now so I thought I'd take Kiyomi dancing. Isn't she sweet?

The stamps come mounted and the rubber is deep cut which I love. Also, the size is PERFECT.

I'm entering this card in the Lollipop Crafts "Special Summer Challenge" where "anything goes." If you'd like to join in on the fun, you have till July 30, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. (PST) to submit your entry. Click here for the details.

Also entered this card in Crazy 4 Challenges C4C94. This challenge requires a Center Step Card. Click here for the details.





Other supplies I used: Washi paper by Paper Intelligence, Embossing folder by Cuttlebug, cherry blossom and stamen punches by Punch Bunch, Chochin (lantern) stamp by Hero Arts, Copics, Pop Dots, Ribbon, and "Kiyomi" printed on the computer.




Can't wait to create something with Mei Lin and Mei Li.


Thanks for stopping by.

Wonderful Karen! That is so funny . . . I can't believe how excited you were to start the base of the card early. What a great idea 'cause I'm sure it was easy for you to color up and add Kiyomi at the end. :) Great job.
