Buddha, Buddha, Buddha Rockin' Everywhere

My sister is OBSESSED with Buddhas. She thinks they are just so wonderful and full of good vibes. I just about screamed when I saw this stamp by Judikins at Chica Ink. It is just GORGEOUS!! I embossed it with Brown Embossing Powder and colored it in with Tombows. I choose tombows because they are water based and resemble a more watercolor-y look. I think the shaded look of the stamp really calls for it.

The sentiment is from Stampendous (House Mouse) and actually goes with a fortune cookie House Mouse Stamp, but I thought it was perfect for this card! I used my Star Wheel from Stampin' Up on the base cardstock, which is Chocolate Chip.

I also wanted to wish everyone a VERY Happy Fourth of July!! We're headed to the beach and to see Fireworks tonight! I also wanted to say thank you to all of those who serve to protect our country and those families who have loved ones who do the same!
