Thank You Haruyo!

We made it!  Wowee!! Sure had fun posting all these projects. Really had to push myself this time to come up with new things.  Love all the inspiration out there- please check out You Tube fore more inspiration!

On to my last project....  I really wanted to use this new paper I got from my LSS.  Not sure why, but the flowers look a bit asian to me.  I love the muted look and wanted to use it for the front of my card.
Decided to make a belly band around the card out of a frosted gold cardstock and decorated it with a prima burlap leaf and rosette trim and some flatback pearls.

When you take off the belly band and open up the card you see this...

I finally used my Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts die!  Yay!  Geez, that took awhile since I purchased it last year!  At least I'm using it and not just hoarding!

Decided to cute out the flowers from the paper to tie it in to the front of the card.  Used the platform over the "Thanks" as a stage for Haruyo.  Behind her, I used some scrap acetate to create the brace to keep her standing up.

I know, wisteria not normallly pink, but I wanted it to match the paper.  Even though it's not traditional colors, I kind of like it!

I hope you enjoyed all of our projects for this release!  Thank you so much to Eva for assisting us with this release!  And of course to my girl Debi for all her help!  You guys did a great job!


  1. Woo Hoo!! Way to go out with a bang! This is super cute Jenny! How will you top it off for the next release I have no clue but I do know you won't dissappoint. :) What a very pretty idea. And Haruyo looks beautiful in those colors. Seriously speaking you can't go wrong with any color scheme when it comes to Sister Stamps. They just look great in any color. Just sayin' ;)
    Great release projects!!

  2. This card is gorgeous! I love how you have Haruyo standing on the platform; great way to showcase her. I also love the colors you used on her!

  3. Beautiful paper to accent Haruyo---a beauty.
