oriental splendour


the challenge at DCM is set by Sue


I dare you to make an Oriental themed card which

doesn’t use Red or Black.

I won't tell you how long it took me to fasten those sticks.

Strangely enough the card now looks purple but it is an auberginecolour in reality to go with the aubergine of the lily on the backingpaper

Nicely done...and it still feels Oriental with out the typical color choices.

It seems a lot of people ‘don’t’ do oriental but I have to say Ellen, you’ve done a marvellous job with your card.
The image is great but the tied sticks were definitely worth the time spent tying them. They really are the perfect finishing touch

Thanks for joining in with the DCM dare this week.

The tied sticks are such a great addition to the card - well done for persevering with them - worth the effort. x
