Eastern Influence

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you're enjoying your last day of the weekend!
I had a great weekend so far and even found some time to stamp yesterday.

Below is a card that was inspired by a recent card on Andrea Walford's Blog. I love her blog, she makes the most beautiful cards using stampin up. If you aren't familiar with her blog you have to go see it.

I used the stamp set "Eastern Influences". I've had it for some time now but haven't used it much since I am more drawn to the cute style.

I used copic markers for coloring. The sentiment is from another Stampin Up set (retired) - Beautiful Beach. I just love this sentiment and the font.
I embellished it simply with a scallop border, ribbon and a button with some thread.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Hope you liked the card.
Have a great day,

Stamps: Eastern Influences, beautiful beach (both SU)
Paper: Stampin Up
Ink: chocolate chip, copics
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon, button, linen thread
Tools: Scallop border punch (SU)
