Kraftin' Kimmie June Release Day Three AND Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #82 - 24 Krafty Karats!!

 Hey, it's day 3 of the
Kraftin' Kimmie June Release
it's also Saturday...Which means it's time for another
Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!!

Today the girls and I are sharing with you some absolutely
gorgeous "Asian Inspired" images from our amazing artist 
Annie Rodrigue... You are going to LOVE them...

And today's challenge
"24 Krafty Karat"
is being hosted by our very talented and extremely 
sweet Krafty Girl Angie. Angie , the clever cookie that she is,
would like you to use "GOLD" on your creation this week!
Ok...So here goes... 
This is my card featuring the beautiful Akiko...

Akiko means "Sparkle"... I LOVE her!!! This really has to be 
some of my absolute favourite images from Annie so far!! 
Along with Akiko when you buy her you get the sentiment 
"Wishing You Tranquility".
And of course Akiko isn't the only gorgeous Asian inspired image...
There is Kimiko, Takara, Sakura, Natsuko and Mizuki 
ALL as gorgeous as the next!!!

The papers are from Cosmo Cricket's "Circa 1934"  
6x6 paper pad and the border punch is from Fiskars.

I coloured Akiko in with my Prisma pencils and then
paper pieced her dress to match the papers I was using for
the card.

 Then I stamped Akiko again on the inside of the card and used
the sentiment  "Happy Birthday" from Kimmie's Everyday 
Sentiment Set.
Now, if you would like to play along with us all
you need to do is head on over to the
Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog

A card with some "24 Krafty Karats" on it ...Easy!!!
