Asian Happy Birthday

Yay - I had time to play with some Graphic 45 Bird Song paper (my absolute favorite Paper line because it is beautifully designed with a Asian Theme in mind).  I used the Shanghai ladies from the 8x8 pack for these cards.  By grouping the same colors together, these A2 size cards were easy to make.  Card base is Stampin-Up Black.  Gold mat is from Kelly Paper. Graphic 45 Bird Song - Jasmine Dream is the top mat used. Flowers are from Wild Orchid and Velvet leaves are from my stash (actually from my Mom) attached using a hot glue gun. Smooch is used throughout these cards.
Here's one of the cards: light background shades grouped together.
Right side lady has red Smooch on her dress for a little shimmer.
 Center Lady has Pink Smooch on her dress;
 Left side Lady has red Smooch on her dress:
 Another group of cards:
 Left side flowers have Pink and Champagne Smooch:
 Of course, this center Lady has Pink and Champagne Smooch, too:
 More Pink and Champagne Smooch on the right side card.
 This last card has a lot of red in it.
Left lady has Pink and Champagne Smooch in the flowers:

 Center Lady has Pink Smooch:
 Right Lady has Red Smooch in the sleeves:
 Card inside is matted with Graphic 45 Bird Song - Jasmine Dream.  Stamped message is from Papertrey Ink - Think Big Favorites #13
Thank you for stopping by today...........have a great crafting day.
