What a wonderful challenge, Hannah...actually one of the panels that I used on my card yesterday was repurposed packaging. The white printed panel on this card is part of a bag that DS sent from Japan as wrapping on a gift. I stamped the portrait of the three women in Versamark, then gold embossed. Masked that image then stamped Chinese Calligraphy in Versamark. Drew a border with gold pen. Stamped the bonsai image on a white card and on a Concord scrap and embossed both. Used the MS scoring tool to make a fan and tied with gold thread. Added the pearls. This is also for the fan club challenge this month. My sons are all amazing people and I am so inspired by their openness to learn. I am so blessed to know each of them - this is inspired by Jeffrey, a student of East Asian languages and culture.
Thank you so much for looking and have a peaceful day.

Very elegant card. Love the colors and the layout. How cool you could celebrate your son's love of East Asian languages with your beautiful creation. I miss you guys - I really do plan to actually make a card this weekend! Hugz!!!!!
