I needed a card for John's cousin Akiko-san in Japan who recently had a baby boy, so what better place to look for inspiration than http://www.cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/?!
I pulled out CTMH Aspen paper pack since it has such beautiful blue's. I stamped an image from CTMH Flower Child stamp set and stapmed using Black Brilliance on vellum and heat set it. Then I turned the image over and used my water brush to color the image.
I've got a goody box full of baby gifts and American snack foods that the family likes all ready to go, so this will go to the post office today...headed for Japan!
