Taiko Fun

Woo-hoo!  I was so excited about the newest release of Sister Stamps.  I totally LOVE
"Yoichi" performing his taiko drumming.  Thought I'd create a outdoor scene with Yoshimi  (from a previous release) dancing in the background.  In real life, my hubby and I enjoy taiko performances too.

Crafty ingredients used to whip up this card:
Grass die by Martha Stewart
Fence die by Poppy Stamps
Cherry Blossom sticker by Jolee's Boutique
Dragonfly brad by Eyelit Outlet
DP by Sizzix
Distress ink used on the fence tops
Pop Dots

Pin and Tack - Challenge 8 - Anything Goes

Love this card and how you created a little storytelling, so CUTE! Yoichi and Yoshimi are a perfect match, and with the branch of cherry blossoms this totally reminds me of Japan.
