DCM - Oriental splendour

The real title of this should be "Jozza doesn't do oriental!" which is why I am almost 11 hours late posting my DT card this week. I literally have nothing oriental in my stash (or so I thought). Lythan reminded me that there was an oriental image in an image swap that the Funky Hand DT have done. Hmm I'd forgotten about that! I think it was Enfys that sent it to me so thank En you saved the day!

Whilst rooting around my stash I found some paper in my DCWV Rock Star stack that would be semi ok to use and then the piece de resistance was the oriental ATC paper I found lurking in the darkest depths of one of my craft drawers. That is left over from when I helped my mum make an oriental card for one of her friends a couple of years ago. Sooooo I did manage to cob
ble together a card in the end, even if it did involve blood sweat and tears - phew!

Oops I forgot to say that the challenge is set by Sue this week who wants an oriental themed card that doesn't use the colours red or black!

Paper - DCWV - rock star
Image - from Enfys - I think it was personal impressions
ATC paper - don't know it was my mum's
Flowers - prima
Brad from stash

Ah ha……It wasn’t meant to be easy Jozza…..tee he!

Considering you ‘don’t do Oriental’ you’ve done a grand job.
The image and the colours are great!
