     Our Papercraft Star challenge this week is "Thank You". 
     For my card I stamped the base mat of the card with a Ornate Background stamp and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  The fan is made from vellum and I used a little digi image from Beccy's Place for the flowers on it.  They're colored with Prismacolor pencils.  For my focal point I used this cute little Asian lady image from Stretch 'n Bubbles.  I paper pieced her using a Floral Fabric Domino THATB digital image.  Her face and the umbrella are colored with Copics.  The floral panel behind her is also a digital image from the Oriental backgrounds digital file.
     We have a special guest with us this week, Ros Crawford.  Make sure you check out her guest project!  :-)
     You can link up your "Thank You" projects by 6:00 a.m. EST on Monday.
