Happiness, Health, and Harmony
There is a teen girl at my church who just loves Japanese culture. She likes the anime especially! I wanted to use a borrowed Pagoda cartridge and she instantly came to mind. I made this birthday card for her and maybe I can put a gift card in it to her favorite sushi bar. The characters on the right hand side of the card are for happiness, health, and harmony.
Cartridges: Pagoda, Accent Essentials
Stamps are from Inkadinkado (Far East).
Inks: Wasabi (MS), Cameo Coral (SU), Versamark (the sparkly one).
Punches: both MS (teardrop border and mini tag)
Ribbon is from my stash. It is also MS.
I folded the fan to give it some dimension and added a brad to hold the tag on the base of the fan. Inside the card will say, "Wishing you great fortune on your birthday!" I am squeaking in for a couple of challenges tonight so that is why I haven't printed the inside yet. :)
