ORIENTAL OPULENCE !

Hello guys, the sun is shining here in the uk ! I seem to be on a roll at the moment with my creativity YAAAAY ..........Lets hope it lasts !!! This is my latest creation........
 I used a stampin up 'fancy square ' punch. I coloured them with adirondak 'stream', 'meadow' and 'currant' and also used stampin up 'tempting turquoise' ! I stamped with 'oriental' clear stamps by 'papermania'! I used gold and white embossing powders, faux stitching around the frame ......and there you have it !!! I am extremely pleased with the way this has turned out !!! A huge thankyou to JACQUELINE FROM ...........http://myscrapbasket.blogspot.com/
who inspires me greatly.........bless you sweetheart....... Have a fantastic weekend, and do something kind, xxxx
I shall be entering this into the following challenges.......

  6. Chris this is a WINNER!!!!
    Your little dye-cuts add more interest then just plain squares and the oriental theme makes for a pleasant change,and last but not least the butterfly, where would we be without these little creatures to enhance our cards, they just seem to finish every card off beautifully as it does on this one. Well done.
