Mojo Monday 385 Asian Peace Card

With Chinese New Year celebrations lasting two weeks, I'm making more Asian cards for the families from China whose children attend school with my grandchildren. I loved this Graphic 45 image of the young lady and her dog. I thought it looked so peaceful, so I chose the theme of "Peace."

The background paper is very old CTMH called "Asian Chic." The diagonal piece and the mats from DCWV and the  pink print and image are from Graphic 45 "Bird Song." The stamp is from a retired CTMH stamp, "Wisdom." I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with CTMH gold embossing powder and dry embossed the lower portion of that pink panel using a Spellbinder's M-Bossibilities "Asian" embossing folder. The inside is stamped with this verse stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 7:

"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 25:3"

I used this week's lovely sketch from Mojo Monday. Check out my second card below and how I used this sketch.

I'm sharing this first card with the following challenges:
Blogger's Challenge - Metal - gold metallic embossing powder
Love to Scrap #48 - anything goes
Fussy and Fancy #133 - Tic Tac Toe (bottom row - sentiment, wet emboss, sparkle in center of flower)
Mojo Monday #385 - sketch
Simply Create Too #79 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #171 - anything uplifting

When I finished the first card, I decided to flip the sketch and modify it a little, using additional Bird Song images and papers. Here's the result:

I used another set of stamps from my retired CTMH "Wisdom" stamp set. This one I embossed with black embossing powder and used a larger card size. The papers came from the same sets as those above.

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you this year with His peace and loving friendships!
