CFC #10 & Paper Players #55

No ordinary cards allowed here this week! The challenge was to create a shaped card, anything but a normal A2 Card. Try it out, here.

And what a nice color palate over at the Paper Players. Click here if you want to try it our yourself.

And together, they make this card:

The bow is STILL repurposed ribbon from an Ann Taylor Loft bag from quite awhile goes a long way :) Especially since I don't have any grey paper, and a lot of color challenges include grey.

This card is for my friend Ann, who absolutely loves anything with an Asian feel. So when I saw that Michaels was have a huge Clearance event, I had to check it out. When I saw this great Asian themed stamp for only $3.99, it ended up in my cart ;) It is made by Inkadinkado and is called Asian Characters. The lanterns are actually from another $3.99 set made by Hampton Art. It wasn't an Asian set, but they looked perfect for this card :) The Mosaic Tiles are Crystal Stickers by Mark Richards. I found these at Michaels awhile ago and just haven't really found the right place to use them...until today, that is ;) The sentiment is PTI's Signature Greetings. The pearls are Queen and Co. And to make the card base, I used my SU Sizzix scallop circle die. The other two circles are Nestabilities. The paper is all SU, and the colors were perfect for the Asian theme. I think she's going to absolutely love this card :)
