Japanese Garden

Hi there!  Just a quick post today showing this card I made.  

I was in love with the Koi stamps and dies from Hero Arts form the moment I saw them, so I knew I had to have them.  I haven't gotten the stamps yet, but I will.  

This is the first card I made using the die.  I wanted it to have a Japanese feel.  Enter this older DP from BasicGrey...perfect.  I colored the Koi with my Zig watercolor markers.  The sentiment is from Concord & 9th, such a lovely set.  The pearls from Simon Says Stamp was the last touch to add a bit of lightness to the creation. 

When I asked my husband what I should say in my blog post he said I should ask you if you like my card.... so.... do you? 

Entering this into:
