I used the Pagoda cartridge by Provo Craft to cut the lanterns, birds, bridge, and the temple. There are so many great images on this cartridge, that it was hard to choose which ones to cut.
On the lanterns I added rhinestones and used the same background paper to decorate them. My friends Isela and Jazmin love to shop at Ross Department Store for their scrapbooking supplies, and so I took their advice. I found a pack of designer paper by C.R. Gibson called Ruby Lemonade. It is a pack with 100 sheets of tapestry designs which I loved and all for only $7. Wow! I'll be shopping more often at Ross.
For the Botanical Garden letters, I used the Cursive 101 cartridge which I had not used before. The letters look like they are welded together. Will definitely be using this cart more often.
For the black flourish design on the temple I used glitter sticker borders by KI Memories. Also added a few more rhinestones to the temple.I think I over did it with the rhinestones on my bridge, but I liked the effect. I used mounting tape to give all the images a 3-D look.
"Beautiful" was cut from Tinker Bell & Friends cartridge and then embossed with the Finial Press impressions folder by Stampin' Up. Used black and red cardstock and mounted the black over the red.
