I know this card doesn't look like much, since you really can't see the light blue shading in the background.
Another card for the ladies down at the Senior Center.
I used the copic airbrush system for the background, Memory Box branch die (love this die) and SU bird punch. The bird was punched from a gold lining from a sake box the staff at the YAK saved for me from Sake San Jose. It was a little too bright gold, so I airbrushed is with a little dark brown. Again hard to see the shimmer in the photo. The triple matting added to the look and that was done with my Gensis paper cutter, which is the best.
