Island Scrapbooking Craft Night Swap Cards

Every first Friday of the month, Island Scrapbooking hosts Craft Night, where customers can come, learn about something new or do a make 'n take, and shop after regular store hours. We also host a card drawing, where participants who want to swap cards can bring in a card they made and we draw numbers to see who gets which card. Normally you only bring in one card, but I decided to make one for Michele too since she didn't have time to make a card for herself. Since I'm "distress happy" now days, I used my distress inks to come up with these two cards.
We also made a father's day card for the free make 'n take but I forgot to take a photo of it. I will try to get a picture of it and post it soon. We used mica powders with stamping for a nice "manly" effect.
Distress inks- Ranger
Sakura background stamp- Judikins

Oh, these are beautiful! What a wonderful effect you created with the sakura stamp on the background of the Japanese girl card. Is this hard to do? I'd love to learn!
