yesterday did someone steal the cranes?

I have an Asian inspired CAS card to share today I made for a friend’s birthday.

I’ve been meaning to try this perfect pearls embossing technique ever since I found the tutorial by Bex on the Flying Unicorn Forum.  I decided to use it on a chippie rather than a die cut mostly because I have loads of chippies and really need to start using my stash (basically because I have no room to buy any more!). 

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  As my card is a CAS one I am entering it in the current challenge at Crafty Catz.  As I have flowers and a bird I’m also linking it up at Brown Sugar where their theme is in the garden (although I admit we get the occasional egret but no cranes in our garden).
