Getting back to my roots

Ok, but not completely...because I'm not Japanese. My mom is half Thai and half Chinese so Southeast Asian all the same! I just call myself "a by-product of the Vietnam War." Just delayed by a few years. :) Either way, I saw this new set by Hero Arts called Four Dolls and I just had to have it! The little girls are just soo adorable! I love everything about this set. There are even more Asian accessories that you can purchase to coordinate with it! *drool*

I spent a lot of loving care putting this card together. This close-up, hopefully, shows the shimmer in the flowers on her kimono as well as a bit of shimmer on the fans. Click the photo to get a better view!

My layout follows the latest Mojo Monday Challenge...LOVE THOSE! The sketch looks as follows...
And here's the full card.

Cute, yes? :)

Hi Melissa! :) I can't find your email so I'm just replying to you here. Yes! These are available in stores...I found mine at my local Archiver's and I think you can order it directly from the Hero Arts website. Congratulations on your adoption! :)

I didn't see this when I visited before and I just had to comment on how amazing it is! LOVE that little girl but your coloring and the choices you made are gorgeous and it goes so well with that embossing plate.
