Yoko

Thank you everyone for your wonderful messages from yesterday's FBW blog hop.  I am really excited to be on the FBW team and I hope you all get a chance to play in this week's challenge.  :)

Today I wanted to share one of my finished Thank you cards featuring one of the Sister Stamps images.  This card features Yoko.  She was so much fun to color and I had fun paper piecing her kimono and bow.  If you can believe it, this is a one-layered card!  Well it's mostly a one-layered card.  (hehe)  Tried making something different this time.


I know I need tons more work on the dots around her, but for now I'm ok with how it turned out.  Baby steps for me.  The colors on her hair were fun too.   I wish I could remember what they were.  I actually finished this card a few months back.   I used different levels of sakura punches for the flowers on the other side to balance it out.  The origami paper was purchased from Hanko Designs and one of my favorites.  The sentiment is from a retired sentiment set from The Greeting Farm.

Mahalo for stopping by today and if you have some time, stop by tomorrow for my Fun Friday post.  Happy Thursday!

Hugs,
Leanne
