Challenge 13

Stars & Stamps weekly challenge is this sketch:

What a fun one - I particularly like the part about the sentiment on the diagonalish line. I searched through letter stickers and rub ons for the perfect sentiment but decided to practice using one of my favorite new Cricut cartridges this time - it's called Pagoda and it is just really beautiful and fun to work with! I downloaded screenshots of the kanji from a site called The Kanji Site and added text to them (font is called Parchment) The little shrine and some of the tree branches are popped up off the page using the booger technique and the patterned paper is from my Asian stack by DCWV.

I have a new video as of yesterday, did you see? :) 

Also I am trying to think of something really fun to do to celebrate - my YouTube Channel has had more than 20,000 views of my video tutorials! I am thinking that a prize package should be involved!!!

Ahh, but work calls and I am on duty tonight and tomorrow - so I will be back for the weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
