Monday Madness... Imagine That

Welcome to all my followers and new followers.  Remember I have a giveway which you can find here this will be open until Sept. 3 12am pst.

It's Monday Madness over at My Creative Time!  I don't have an imagine I wish did. I am still debating if I should get one or get me a printer that prints 12 x 12 since I also do some digital scrapping.  But no worries, I will share with you this beautiful paper that I got from my local scrapstore.  It's Japanese Rice paper aka Washi.  I love the feel of it, it's really nice but it was also $2.25 a piece for 8.5 x 11.  

If you want something like it I say go to Michael's and look for the Origami section. My son bought 200 piece of 6 x 6 for only $4.99 using his 40% off coupon.

Okay now on to my card.  For today, we can use any stamp set of our choice.  I was really dying to use this image I bought awhile ago so I thought my sentiment went perfect with it.
Card Size 4.25 x 5.5
Base is Bazzill
DP is Japanese Rice Paper (beautiful isn't it)
Image (including the butterfly) is called Kiyomi from Sister Stamps which is matted on the Lacey Labels nestie
I colored my image with Copics and added Glossy Accents on her belt and parts of the butterfly
Ribbon is from Michaels
Sentiment is My Creative Time's Encouraging Quotes stamp set, doesn't it really look like her hands are reaching out to you, LOVE her stamp sets.

Here is what this stamp set looks like

Now go visit My Creative Time to see what my fellow creative DT's have created for you today.

Kate this is so cute. Love the rece paper. I have used a paper with cherry blossoms and I loved it. I used it sparingly because of the price. I can't wait to see the little Japanese girl stamp.
