Oriental Splendour

Running behind with Sue's brilliant dare this week;

I (Sue) thought I would treat you all to a Chinese Take Away, if you’re up for it. No, I’m not talking about food……I’m talking about my dare!

I would like you to make a card with an Oriental influence and the ‘Take Away’ I referred to is the twist in the tail.

When ever Oriental is mentioned most people, including myself immediately reach for Red and Black so I’m taking them away from you and removing them from the pallet of colours that you can use on your card.

Eek! No red or black! Red not being the problem, but no black! After a little consideration, I made this;

and used 'charcoal' instead of black *grins*
BG Ambrosia and Sassafras Sunshine Lollipops papers, Prima and Dunelm flowers, Papermania brads BG rub on, inking and ribbon from stash

Have a great weekend!
