Ni Hao

This is my second post for the day....please scroll down to see my Guest DT post for Sweet Stampin

Ni Hao = Hello or Hi  :)
I've had the idea for this card in my head for months now.  My little ones use to watch Ni Hao, Kai Lan which is kind of a Chinese version of Dora the Explorer but she teaches children how to speak Chinese.  The first time the kids saw this Your Next Stamp image, Miya from China they immediately thought it was Kai Lan so I just had to make this card.  :)

I found this sweet lantern DP from American Crafts (Hello Sunshine) at a local art supply store and snatched it from the shelf like it was the last one on earth.  LOL  I mean come on...could it BE more perfect?!?  And it's a little hard to tell from the photo but I embossed the blue cardstock with a Floral Screen embossing folder which has a bit of an Asian look to it.  A little bit of machine stitching on the paper panels, cute white ruffled ribbon, pearls, and Stardust Stickles on her outfit were the only embellishments needed for this simple but sweet sketch from The Sweet Stop.

Be sure to stop by the other Sugar Babies blogs to see their fabulous samples using this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch.  And this week we have a new Sugar Baby joining us...the very talented Lorie Ames.  I hope you will please stop by to give her a warm welcome!

Super combination of aqua with the kraft colour & I particularly like how your ruffled ribbon echoes the scalloped pattern on her tunic.
