Asian Swap

This is a card I received in the mail TODAY from Gene L.! I was so excited because it is made in my very favorite colors and it is ASIAN! This is a elegant step card with beautiful Washi paper. Finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". She also sent sample Washi cuttings in Black/Red/White - nice touch!!!! Gene gave permission for me to share this wonderful card with you all since she doesn't have a blog yet.

The "scroll" part of the card is stamped on gold paper, popped with dimensionals.

Like the cords in the front as embellishments? Love this touch............

Here's a closer view of the calender, peeking above the cranes:

Well, this was such a pleasant surprise. It's awsome! I enjoyed sharing this with you................hugs!!!
