Not much to say about this. My SIL sent me a gorgeous card in which she used this cutout technique (although in a much more elaborate way), and I wanted to try it. One of those cards where you keep adding to it and asking yourself "Is it done yet?" The jury is still out, there's room for a small sentiment if I decide I need one for some occasion. But I like the colors and I had fun playing with my WC pencils on that geisha stamp.

That Melon Berry is perfect for an Asian look. When we were in Paris last week we came across a Chinese centre we'd never seen before (as well as visiting the Japanese cultural centre which always has the most amazing ceramics), and this puts me in mind of it straight away with that gridded background paper. The button die is totally wonderful with the raised flower centre.

No fear of dp on this card..I love the bg paper and then there's the vertical writing...wow, great layer for the geisha image! The framing couldn't be better on this or more interesting and I love the color scheme! Oh and then there's the cool paper buttons....can you tell I like this a lot??
