Another Change up......

Here is another 'old faithful' card that I have done a couple of times. I originally saw it on SCS here. So I attempted it here...


here....



and here...



Now, as crafters......we NEVER EVER make random or impulse purchases...do we??? (and we all know the answer to that one!!) Well, about a month or so ago I was walking through Alice In Paperland and saw this beautiful Japanese oragami paper. The vibrancy of the colour immediately hit me and the possibilities of card options rapidly flicked through my brain. So... after a couple of hit an misses regarding colour similarities....I came up with this....



I was so very happy with the final result. Given the intricacy of the Japanese paper I decided to not add the ribbon (that and the fact that I had SOOOOOOOO much trouble colouring white satin ribbon with Kiwi Kiss reinker).

Hope you like this 'impulse' card. I am working on another card with this paper and some of my trusty old punches that I hope to get finished soon.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Mellow Moss, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White.
Ink: (SU) Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red.
Stamps: (SU) Eastern Blooms, Linen BGS.
Other bits: Japanese Oragami Paper, Dimensionals (SU), Happy Birthday Rub-ons

I've always loved Eastern Blooms and that Japanese paper you bought is a divine partner for it - an impuls buy you say - who does that - NOT ME ;) - excuse me while I choke back laughter!
