Oriental Stamp Art Sketch 202

 In the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo Group, the weekly challenge this week is a sketch.
Here is Sketch #202 we were given:
  So, I flipped the sketch and made more cording on the top. I used gold lantern stickers that were RAK'd to me by a fellow OSA member Carla. I used double sided sticky tape- placed the stickers on the tape, burnished on Glitter Ritz in Cool Highlights. You can color with Copic Markers over Glitter Ritz, so that is what I did. I layered that over Washi paper (RE240) from Stonehouse Stamps.
  I will be sending this card to my daughter who is teaching in China- our first year apart for Christmas.... and my first Oriental themed Christmas card.
