Custom Card Monday...err...Wednesday!

Busy beginning of the week here at Hawaii Paper Party! A couple of design team posts and a blog hop! Whew! So my Custom Card Monday post has turned into a Custom Card Wednesday post this week! (I feel funny posting twice in the same day. Kind of like I'm not giving posts their full day of being-looked-at potential. LOL, does anyone else feel that way?)

Anywho, here's my card!

Someone asked me to make a card that looked exactly like a painting their Mom had in her living room.  Unfortunately I didn't have a photo of the painting, just the description! It was "a pagoda on an island that can be accessed by a bridge, and cherry blossoms all around." This represented Springtime in Vietnam. She also wanted that sentiment for Chinese New Year and some lanterns. Here's what I came up with!

All cuts are from Pagoda, but added more pink flowers with a SU punch for dimension.  Also sponged the sky and water with some SU inks. 

Entering this in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Little Miss Muffet: Anything Goes
Stampin Boutique: Own Background


Hope you enjoyed my custom card this week!
