Welcome to day of Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop. 
For two day I have two awesome cards show casing bamboo. 

For this card I used the fun and oh so cute bamboo in this stamp set. I used papers by Gina K Designs and Paper Trey Ink. I love this beautiful green paper by Paper Trey Ink. I stamped the bamboo and colored each one using my Spectrum Noir markers. I decide not to use a sentiment. I wanted to show case this beautiful bamboo. I wanted to let it be the star of this card. 

Up Next....
I wanted to show case this beautiful embossing folder. When I saw this stamp set I know I had to save this fold just for that. I love the great details of the bamboo and the sentiment is perfect. I used that same papers on this one just add some brown card stock by PTI and Momenta.

I want to thank you for using the embossing folders you did during last month's blog hop. I showed your blog to my daughter. She loved the oriental cards so much that she bought that set of embossing folders for me! I just got them yesterday!

The stamped bamboo is beautiful! Very oriental in nature and serene.

I like how you incorporated the sentiment into the embossed bamboo card. It is beautiful!
