Sunflowers and Coins

I made an ATC for a lottery we have on About Oriental Art Yahoo Group (AOSA).  Our theme was Sunflowers and a coin and of course, an Oriental themed design.


 I had a napkin with a sunflower on it. I pulled off the back layers, then crumpled it up. I took ATC blank and put it through the Xyron. I uncrumpled the napkin and applied it to the sticky side of the ATC. I stamped some Kanji in Black then stamped and a little gold Kanji. Added some gold cord, then added the stamped and embossed Asian coin. I had to add some shimmer with Wink of Stella. Then, dragged the ATC through Versamark and added a touch of gold on the edges.
  We are off to Colorado on Wednesday for the wedding next Sunday.  Wish us good weather and sunshine.  Life is Good!

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly
