Thanks for the Kimono!

Last weekend we had a girls' weekend to celebrate the birthday of my dear friend Megan. While I was there, my sweet friend Melissa gave me a Kimono for Lilah. It was a hand-me-down from her daughter Hannah. Someone had brought it home to her from a trip to China. It is beautiful, royal blue with butterflies on it. I remembered this darling image from Mo's Digital Pencil that I had. So I printed it off to make a thank you card for her.

How cute is this image. Her little face is so pretty, I think. I used the Midnight Madness sketch (MMSC44) for this layout. Another great sketch this week. She is all stickled up and her teapot and cup are covered in glaze to look like ceramic. I made my flower accent after seeing the cool tutorial from my blogging friend Karli, she always has the best tutorials.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Mo's Digital Pencil Kimono Girl digi
Ink: printer
Paper: GP110, Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Tangerine Tango, MME patterned
Embellishments: SU corner rounder and scalloped circle punch, MS leaf punch, copics, stickles, glaze pen, mini brad, PTI ribbon

Very pretty card. It has a distinctly Asian flavor to it, perfect for a thank you for a Kimono. I love Mo's artwork, the images really speak to me.
