Look Deep.....

 Hello friends!  I have been missing my Asian style cards lately, so thought I'd share this one with you. My daughter Katie just went back to Jinan, China for her third year of teaching there, so you can see where my inspiration lies....

  This is done using a Technique Junkies technique called Resist Strips. I used images from Technique Junkies Stamps. I used colors you see in China that are very predominate.
 Do you have any flowers like this in your stash?  I have not used these for ages!

Allsorts- Warm Sunshiney colors
Pumpkin Spice- Children
Crafting Musketeers- 1, 2, 3  (one ribbon, 2 dies, 3 flowers)
Crafting Cafe- Insp Picture
Milk Coffee Challenge- Add stripes
Crafty Creations- Use something from your stash- flowers
Creative Card Crew- embossing (background and image)

Have a wonderful weekend!
