the first creations in 2010

Hi! Happy Monday, everyone!
  In the evening of Jan 7th, I made a card for one of my friends, Ms. K, she gave me tons of needlework goodies before last Christmas when she stayed in Japan, teddy bear kits, embroidery flosses, a gorgeous embroidery chart book by Marie-Thérèse Saint-Aubin, the French designer, and the truffle (chololates) etc. (Thanks so much K chan!)
I'm going to send her the card with some gifts.

Well, here is the card.

I did heat-embossing on the pattern papers to use two stamps. And actual color of the flower is more pink, since I used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink for it, and added some colors to use copic markers.

And I also made the ATC to use left-over papers.

stamp used:
HA Houndstooth / K5175
HA Design Blocks Raindrop Background / S5101
HA Design Blocks Woodgrain / S5208
HA Clear Design All Ocasion Messsages / CL272
Stampers Anonymous / Studio 490 stamp

other supplies:
Bazzil Basics CS, SEI PP
Ranger Distress Inks, Distress Stickles、Dimensional Pearls
HA Hearts Accent Pearl, Copic Markers etc.

 Today is the national holiday in Japan. And I'm in my winter holidays yet - I'm going to take holidays for one more week. So I'll try to make, and I'll be able to show you something. Until then.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a beautiful week!
