My Yoshiko
Sweet Sketch 98

Oh, how I love Sally Ann's Cute Oriental Characters.  This image is called Kishi. It reminded me of my granddaughter and thought I would make her birthday card with this image.  I'm a few months early but that is ok.  It will be waiting for her when the time comes. 
This card almost took me back to Okinawa.
