Snowflower card

Suzanne Dean of Color Me Creative Classroom has stared a new group called Book Endz.  We will read a book every month and at the first of each month there will be a new book announcement.  There will be discussions and chatter at the Book Endz group page.  

There will be a Book party at the first of each month and share projects that have been made in the theme of whatever boook is being read and Suzanne will have a giveaway and some fun prizes.  You can attend the party and join the group EVEN if you don't finish/read the book or make a project.  Everyone is invited to join in the fun.  

This month Suzanne chose Snowflower and the Secret Fan.  This is a Great good book to begin our reading journey.  I was able to read thru the book fairly quickly because it is soooo good and I also put the Kindle application on my iphone and found myself reading the book while waiting in line at the bank, while I got my nails done and even while I was at the dentist. 

Here is my card for this month:
The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions.  The blue paper is from Papertrey Ink and the oriental paper is some I've had for a very long time - there was no maker's mark.  It is like a rice paper or hand made paper.  I also used a tag die from Spellbinders.  The fans were 1/2 of the Tim Holtz flower die.

Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a HAPPY stamping day!
