Taiko Fever

This past weekend, my friends and I went to the Taiko Festival in Hilo.  I always look forward to it because it is so entertaining and you can just feel the energy all of the drummers pour out into their performances.   Having had Taiko Fever after the festival, I was compelled to make a taiko card.  So I inked up Ai by Sister Stamps.  Also used the following dies:  "Stitched Rectangle Frame" by Die-namics, "Party Lantern" by Poppy Stamps, and "Landscape Trio" by Mama Elephant.  All from Island Scrapbooking.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!

I'm finally getting back to reading posts after attending my son's graduation in Boston. Your taiko drummer card is very appealing and just right for the bon festival season. The lanterns are a great addition.
