First BookEndz card

Back again with a quick post. I've joined the online reading group, BookEndz, over at Color Me Creative Classroom started up by Suzanne Dean. Our first discussion is tonight, the book was Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. It was an interesting read for sure. The challenge to go with was to make a card reflecting the book. I went with an Asian themed card.

My layout is from the sketch #117 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Looking forward to tonight for the discussion and to see what the next read will be!

Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI ssw, Black, SU Pale Plum, BG Kioshi prints
