Asian Birthday Card/Notebook

This project started as a birthday card for my niece but evolved into a notebook/card.  Since she has lots of 'bright ideas' I thought the Studio G notebook would be perfect for her to jot down her great thoughts.  The simple lined tablet was very plain so I fancied it up with some KaiserCraft paper and a wooden charm.  I wanted the gold 'bright ideas' to still be visible so I used a circle die to cut an opening in the collage of Asian papers and Darice cherry blossom embossed vellum. I used some Inka gold paste (sold at BFC a while back) to bling up the wooden Japanese character circle (KaiserCraft). If your Inka paste is dried out (like mine was) just sparingly add some water and it will revive.  I plan to write my birthday greeting on the inside of the tablet. This simple card/notebook is a great gift and greeting all in one. I hope my niece will like it and the erasable Japanese marking pen set which she can use to write down her wonderful insights.
