Year of the Horse Vase

I decided to make an Asian themed card for a challenge to make a Flower Pot at MFP:

 Since it is the Year of the Horse in China, I made a vase with a circle punch and added the top of the SU ornament punch. I highlighted the vase with a white paint pen- and that is a challenge this month at the Oriental Stamp Art (aka OSA) Yahoo Group. I colored the flowers with Copics and added Sakura Gelly roll pen for shimmer in the centers of the flowers. The background Kraft cardstock also has Kanji stamped onto it.

Challenges:
Speedy and Fox Friends - Flower Pot
Paperminutes- Asain
613 Avenue Create- Anything Goes+ Use Pink


Have a great day!
