It's time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out!
For this challenge, my DT card features an adorable digi set from Stamper’s Delight. Instead of making a card, I decided to create a tag that I can attach to a pink or white gift bag.  Both of the sentiments on the tag are from the set and the wonderful birthday banner sentiment is a freebie from Decosses Dynamite Doodles(You can find lots of wonderful papers and sentiments on their site, many are free. Find the link in the supplies list.)

A recent challenge at wecraftcards is to make a "Book Binding" card. This was a new fold for me and this was a new fold to me... and one that I will definitely use again. (You can find instructions HERE.) For some reason the fold makes me thank of Asian art. So I dug through my stash of origami paper for inspiration. I discovered that my stash is getting a little slim, but there were several nice-sized scraps so I decided to make them into a "scene." After adding a “moon” made with a small piece of gold paper, the card front still looked a little sparse, I used additional scraps to make a beautiful Asian paper doll. She adds the perfect addition to the card!
·   Asian Paper Doll Pattern found HERE.
·   Front Sentiment- from my scrapbook stash (unknown source)

·   Inside Sentiment- Computer Generated

·   Asian Gold coin, scraps of ribbon and other items from my stash.
