Today I am showcasing another country for you - you have seen my Canada Honey image from last months release and this months release I am about to show you the new JAPAN Honey image, I just love how Lindsay represented each country she really has outdone herself!  Here ismy card I made to show to you......

Here is apicture of the inside of the card.....
* 6.5x5 Card and Envelope
* Image:  Sassy Studio Designs, Japan Honey
* Copic Xpress Paper
* Copic Markers (colours used listed below)
* Patterned Paper:  First Edition Paper 6x6 Pad, New Leaf
* Black Cardstock: all from my scraps!
* Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels 9
* Cuttlebug to cut out Spellbinders shapes
* Sentiment Stamps:from my local $ Store
* Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
* Glossy Accents
* 3D Pop Dots
* Scissors and CraftKnife

**TIP:  If you use Spellbinders Nestabilities maybe you feel the same as me, I find the sizes are two far apart to double mat with so, what I did was cut out both my patterned paper and my cardstock the same size, then i embosed the patterned paper so that I have a line to cut around it with scissors so that I had enough space to show a mat behind the shape - let me know if this tip is helpful to you!

Here is a close up of the gorgeous image to show you the Copic colours used as wella the Spellbinder Nestabilities tip listed above.....
