Kimono Marci Easel Card

Hey y''s a cute Asian Thank You card I made for a few friends.  The Kimono Marci stamp is from La-la Land Crafts given to me by my friend, Eunice (A Star for Chiemi).  Look what she did...she has inspired me with  this stamp set as well as the dies shown in the card.  The Pagoda and Bridge are all part of dies from the La-la Land Crafts collection found here.  The cloud die is from Taylored Expressions and can be found here. I had so much using this great gift from Eunice.  This card style is a easel card. The paper used is from Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection: Jasmine Dream. The Pagoda is cut using Stampin-Up Cherry Cobbler card stock. The bridge is Recollections Kraft card stock using a brown inked wood grain stamp. Copic colors used: E000, E00, E01, E11, R20, R39, W1, W4, W5, W8, W10. Umbrella is paper pieced using Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection: Shanghai Girls.  Dress is Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection: Tranquility. To add some sparkle, add some Yellow Stickles for the cuffs and front.
The easel card was made using the largest Scallop Circle (4-1/4") from Spellbinders. Inside circles are also using the Large Circle (3-3/4") die from Spellbinders. Tutorial on how to make an easel card can be found on Splitcoast Stampers here.
Side view of easel card: 
Inside stamped message is a stamp from Kimono Marci with a Fan - FYI: La-la Land Crafts will be making a correction to the stamp which should be with one "r" (Arigato). Use the Large Oval punch from Stampin-Up. Stampin-Up Scallop Oval punch on Cherry Cobbler card stock also used here. Pop it up with foam squares to make the easel effect.
Here's a closer look at the dress with the Yellow Stickles:
I love how this card turned out by using a couple die elements and the stamped image.  thank you for stopping by today to visit........more Marcie stamped projects coming.
