Asian Flair Swap Card #4

That Paola, she sucks you in and then she just won't let go! She makes it SO easy and SO fun to join her swaps and that, my friends, is how I ended up with 4 (yes, 4!) spots in her Asian Flair Swap over on SCS. It's crazy I tell you!

I love all the cards I designed, but i do think that this one is my favourite:
It uses the flower from Asian Flair (level 2 Hostess Set). I stamped the image in Versamark Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. The image was then matted on Basic Black Cardstock. I added two Gold Brads at the top right. The red paper to the left of the image and partially underneath the Basic Black 5/8" Satin Ribbon (which is still available in Occasions Mini Catalogue) is a specialty paper that I acquired quite some ago (and probably at the same time as the paper in this post), so I really have no idea who made it, where I got it or anything of the sort.

The base of the card is Basic Black Cardstock and the inside is finished with a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock so that a personal note can be written.

What do you think?
