Artfully Asian Card

I saw a card on Splitcoast by "Vitality" I used the floral background and white embossing powder on white card stock. I then sponged in Lovely Lilac. Sponging it in gave the lilac an even softer look. I used a blender pen and colored the flowers in Lovely Lilac too. I added a little Mellow Moss on the tiny leaves. Then I stamped white craft ink on the black, ran the white through the crimper, added the brads and taped it all together. It actually was a pretty simple card to make!!! I did find a better way to use my crimper. I find it VERY difficult to hold it and run my paper through and try to keep it straight. SO I took a wide rubber band and put it around the handle to hold it tight. Then I ran my paper though. I was able to hold the paper with one hand and wind the handle with the other! A simple fix for a problem I've had with this for a very long time!!!
Here is the link to "Vitality's" card:
Thank you for looking!

Very pretty card. I like the crimper affect too - gives it texture.

Lovely card. I am going to try your idea with the crimper, as I have trouble using it.
