Celebrating Another Birthday in the Office

Sharing with you today is a card I made for another one of my sweet co-workers.  This image of Misaki by Sister Stamps fits the birthday girl so perfectly because she's always cheerful, spunky, smiley, and the life-of-the-party kinda gal.  Also, one of the most kindest, thoughtful, and generous person I know.  Seriously, she brightens our day as soon as she walks into the office with her big smile.



Here's a close-up of the sakura....

Other crafty products used:
Washi paper
Large scallop die which I bought from a crafty bloggie friend.
Copics
Glittered leaves laser cuts by and from Island Scrapbooking
Bakers twine from Ben Franklin Crafts
Small scallop punch by Stampin' Up

Woodland Branch die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking

I also made favors but will post it a wee bit later so I can stretch out my postings....LOL.

Okie dokie, hope you all have a fun and crafty weekend.   Toodles.

This card has a beautiful flow to the design. The colors and background really work well together. I love your little charm and how it adds just the right sparkling touch to the entire piece. You are a master of the Asian scenery card. Thanks for the visual inspiration.

And how you make everything work so well together just baffles me...how do you do it? The colors, washi, the flowers, the pretty charm, the borders, and even the twine together with the adorable little Misaki all scream "MATSURI"! Fabulous job, Karen!
