Happy Birthday Cuz

Last month was my cuz's b/d.  Using the pagoda die by La-la Land she got me for my b/d, I made her this card.    Here's Yoichi by Sister Stamps (Release 12) drumming his Taiko drums in the beautiful outdoors.   The pagoda really adds to the Asian theme.  I LOVE IT!!! My cuz is a true bird lover so I knew I had to add birds to her card.   Can you see the two little bluebirds holding the ends of the pennants?

Other fun item used for this card:
Rocks image by Hero Arts
"Simple Banner" by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Sun die by Hero Arts
Birds by Lawn Fawn which I colored with copies and fussy cut
Embossing folder by Cuttlebug

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Let's Created Challenge - "Challenge 74 - Anything Goes"
Papertake Weekly Challenge - "Old, Borrowed, or Blue" (OLD-rock stamp and BLUE sky)
Loves Rubberstamps - "Use a Hoarded Item" (Rock stamp)
Yumi and Fumi - "Card for Any Celebration"

Thanks so much for stopping by.   Please come again soon for another post featuring Sister Stamps.
A Hui Hou!

I am totally enjoying all the fabulous cards you've come up with using Sister Stamps images. Really like this one a lot, everything about it reminds me of Obon season. Just love how you use diecuts and stamped images and make them look so good together...wonderful!
