Oriental Delights...

Hi, Susan again, well I've gone all oriental with this one, I used a great sketch from Truly Scrumptious and joined it up with another challenge from Creatalicious, using one of my favourite CD's from Joanna Sheen, Tales of the Orient. The image and background papers are so gorgeous I just had to use them on this challenge.

I kept the colours to black, white and red in keeping with the Crafty Creations challenge.

This is one of the many images on the CD rom from Joanna Sheen, they are remarkable... love making cards using these images.

The flowers are my own handmade flowers using punches, I have also used a Multi-Shaper allDeco punch for the trim on the white card behind the image.

This tassel is from Joanna Sheen's website.

I have entered this card in the following challenges...

Truly Scrumptious - Sketch

Creatalicious Challenge #10 - Asian Theme

Sir Stampalot - Punch it

Crafty Creations #70 - Black, white and red

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creation, I hope you like it.

Love Susan

  5. Hi Mam,
    What a great and different card. You both make such a wide range of cards to suit just about anyone. I love this oriental look, very chic!
    The colours are fab. Am I right in noticing that your backing paper is practically the perfect match for the little girls clothing in the image??? If so then very clever indeed!
