Here's the Design Team:

Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

Today I am sharing a card made with the new Oriental Joy set combined with some Prima Meadowlark designer paper.  After stamping my main image in memento black and coloring with prismacolor markers, I stippled tumbled glass distress ink around the edges before layering, adding some white baby brads and silver ice stickles to highlight some of the blossoms.  

I then stamped and sponged a lavender border using the Blossom Branch mini set received free in the April Oriental Swap on SpeedyTV.  Although the April swap is finished, there are still swaps open to participate in and receive a free stamp set of your own too! 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
