Simply Stamp It Color Challenge - Happy Girls Day!

Hi Stampers!

Today, we are playing along with Simply Stamp It's Color Challenge.

Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake & Blackberry Bliss

Today's card is just in time for Hina Matsuri or otherwise know as Happy Girl's Day! I was raised with my Japanese Grandparent whose parents migrated to Hawaii from Japan. As a child, we celebrated every March 3rd as Girl's Day. It was a celebration filled with delicious Japanese cuisine and a gift of a new Japanese Doll.

Today, I'm sharing with you a Happy Girl's Day card using Japanese Origami (Paper Folding) technique. Make sure you come back to visit me tomorrow and I will have the instructions on making the paper doll used in my card,

I wanted to create a oriental feel to the background. I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s  Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set to help create a Cherry Blossom look for my background. I stamped it using Versa NMark and embossing it with Gold embossing powder.

I didn't have a "Happy Girl's Day" stamp, so I just printed it on my computer and ran my crumb cake paper through the printer.

Here is the supply list you need to make this card.

Need supplies? Just head on over to my ONLINE STORE !

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to get directions on making your very own Origami Doll.
