"HOPE" card for Japan


I'd been wanting to make a card, for Japan, to say "GANBATTE!". This word can be used in many ways but in this situation, you can translate as "hang in there", "Be Strong!". People say this word to cheer them up, others & themselves. Anyways I became to know this challenge through my "mouse friend" Mary Anne, and I finally made a card. For this week's challenge, the owners of this blog challenge are donating to the RED CROSS , depending on the numbers of people who plays for this challenge. Great timing :-) For the challenge, 1. I have to use Stash which has DUST on it! (lol!) and 2. I have to use color "RED" in honor of Japan. well, the STASH I used which I hadn't used is this DCWV "The far East Stack" 8"x 8" printed textured paper, which I found at Joann at Clearance section, over a year ago? I've hardly made Asian themed card but the price was soo good (70% off! ) to pass it up! lol... The crane stamp is Posh Impressions. I made a "Japanese flag" and stamped the crane over the center of the "flag". The sentiment is my own handwriting, "KIBOU" (meaning "HOPE"). There is always "hope" in everything...
