Thank You Card for Sweet Cuz and More Japan Pix

I knew I wanted to make an Asian scene thank you card for my sweet cuz so this was pretty much a no-brainer.   Using one of the dies from the Stitched Basic E set by Die-namic and one of the pretty embossing folders she so generously gave me for my b/d, I created this card for her.   

Ingredients used for this card:
Ayako by Sister Stamps
"Woodland Branch," "Blooming Violet" dies by Memory Box
"Word Bubbles Framelits Dies" by Stampin' Up
Sentiment stamp by Mari & Me
Glittered Cherry Blossom laser cuts by and from Island Scrapbooking

Sharing more pix from our awesome Japan trip:

Korakuen incorporates the typical features of a Japanese landscape garden, including a large pond, streams, and walking path.  

Also, a crane aviary....

Beautiful pine trees.....

Another shot of the beautiful pond and tranquil.

At the souvenir / snack shop, we enjoyed some azuki beans with mochi and tea.   

And their famous Peach Ice Cream cone.   Yummy.

This is a shot from one of our hotel room.....forgot which one.  We went to 5.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.

Your cousin always gives you such generous and fun gifts. You in return you always make an awesome "thank you" card for her.
(The card that you made is very cute.)Both of you are truly blest to be in each others lives.
