Hello (with an oriental flair)

One of the best Cricut cartridges I got is the "Lacy Labels"; which is part of the "lite" series of cartridges and is only available at Walmart. I die-cut the oriental frame and the matching shadow from gold paper (Canford), filled the inner frame with a pastel printed paper (from a pack of scrap paper from K & Company) and then mounted the frame on another patterned paper (K & Company Designer Mat Pad). The finished frame was attached to it's gold shadow and then mounted on a card covered with yet another patterned paper (from yet another K & Company Designer Mat Pad). The card was edged with a gold marker (Deco Color). To complete the frame I added gold faux gems (Stampendous Dot Sparklers) in the flourishes. To finish the card I added a geisha sticker (PSX Designs), a water lotus sticker (Jolee's by You/E. K. Success) and the gold text (Starform).
