Oriental Style

I enjoyed working on this card. It began as a colouring exercise with the image from Mo's Digital Pencil. It was quite intricate for Copics but I found it quite relaxing to do.
I am entering it into the challenges from
Cuttlebug Challenges ~ White with an Asian theme
Alphabet Challenge ~ K - Kids (it also has K- Kimono and K- Kitten)
Dp2 ~ Birthday Card
The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, the name of which escapes me for the moment. The embellishment along the bottom is cut from a 6x2 Cuttlebug die. I always put some double sided adhesive sheet onto the back of my cardstock before running it through the bug, so that all I have to do is peel and stick! No messing with glue!
Still lots of snow around here. The road outside my house is still several inches deep!
PS I've looked up the name of the CB folder. It's Flower Fantasy!
