Daring Cardmakers


I have not had the time lately to take part in this challenge but when i saw that the challenge this week was to create an Oriental card without using black and red I thought Ooh I have the very thing- a kit I bought ages ago from QVC with beautiful silk papers and embellishments.
The paper was so lovely in itself that it didn't need much more- I added gold ribbon and a matching brad with a tag which has flipped over to the side with the saying on it but the front matches the paper and the little sentiment in the corner says "the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step"

Gorgeous card Allison! Well done on rising to the challenge. I'm afraid I don't own one single item of oriental stash so I bottled it this week. x
