A Little Asian Influence

Hello everyone. Thanks for coming by to see my card for the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #26! Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I fell in love with the FREE digi "Tree of Life" image I found on Paulette's "Create with TLC" website ( She is a big fan and sponsor of OWH and if you haven't visited her site, you are in for a very special treat. She offers some really beautiful images - some of which are freebies! She is very generous with her gifts and talents!

This card has a bit of an Asian feel I think. The image is colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Stampin Up More Great Greetings using Distress Ink Vintage Photo ink. The DP is from DCWV's Far East and Luxury Stack (belly band). The trim on top the belly band is a peel off and the bottom is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

I really enjoyed participating in the Sketch Challenge again. Hope you have a really great week! Blessings and love,


  1. Gorgeous card Louise!! I love that "Tree of Life" image and you have colored it so beautifully! The colors and gold trim are wonderful! Hope you are doing well!!

  2. Wow - that paper from the Asian stack is one of my very favorite things! And I am loving that delicate little peel off gold trim thingy. . . it's really pretty!

  3. Very lovely card.....the gold trim gives an elegance to it!!! ;)

  4. Thanks for sharing the link to this gorgeous digi image! I love how you colored it! I had to toss my MS doily punch yesterday - it broke! That punched border looks great here! I hope you're coming along nicely and not over-doing yet. Have a great week!

  5. Beautiful work coloring the tree and all the fine little details you included (love that gold trim) really make the whole card special. Great job!

  6. Ohh, I like what you did with this sketch and that tree is really pretty!

  7. I love this card...and LOVE how you used Paulette's DigiStamp of the tree! WOW!!
