Oriental 1, 2, 3

Happy Monday everyone,  hope you are all well!

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and Elaine is our hostess.  Her challenge is 
1, 2, 3:  1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments.

I have to say I found this challenge quite tricky as I'm not very good with embellishments or papers!!

Anyhows, after much faffing about I came up with an oriental style card ...




The Geisha stamp is by Bravura and I've used 2 oriental style papers.  My embellishments are sequin waste, a TH die cut flower and some gold twine.  (Sorry the photo is a bit glary, it's pouring of rain today and the light's very dull)

Our sponsors for this challenge are The Paper Shelter and Woodware Craft Collection.  Hope you can join in - the challenge is running for 3 weeks this time.

Thanks for popping in, see you all soon.

Suze xx
