Aunty Ayako

It's Aloha Friday! Finally! Man, these non-furlough weeks are killing me! Time to celebrate by sharing another card using Aunty Ayako. Aunty didn't know I was going to name a stamp after her and she was so happy when she found out that it was this one. She said this one was one of her favorites.

I love that washi paper she used! Its so perfect with the parasols in the background. Again, she cut out a Spellbinder and used the negative image to create a frame for Ayako. Mental note to me- try using this technique in upcoming cards.
Here's a close up of Ayako. Can you see all the little flowers she added as accents? Yet another thing I probably wouldn't have thought of doing. Man, I gotta take notes already!

Can you believe you have less than a week to enter our blog candy giveaways! Make sure you did to be eligible! I'm throwing in some other goodies too, but its a surprise.
