Sakura Maiden


There is a new challenge starting today at The Crafty Addicts.  The theme for this challenge is Elegance or Anything Goes.  Our sponsor is MoonFlower Digi Stamps.  The winner will receive a $10 voucher to their store.


I have used Sakura Maiden from the sponsor.  I started with a cardbase of SU Primrose Petals.  The rest of my papers came from my paper stash.  I don't know about you, but I tend to be a bit of a paper hoarder.  So, I have loads of designer papers.  I layered my papers and cut two rectangles with the SB rectangle die cut.  These I layered on opposite side and ends of the card.  I made two die cuts of the SB Floral Oval.  One from some of the designer paper and other was used to cut out my image. I layered the image just off center of the other one.  My flowers are from Michaels and the pearls are from my stash.  

I colored my image with these Copic Sketch Markers: E000, E00, E11, E50, E51, E53, R20, R81, R83, R85, RV10, Y00, Y02, Y06, YG11, YG13, YG23, YG25.

I am entering my card in these Challenges:
