Eastern Inspired.....

I have to admit that I am NOT a huge fan of the oriental look, so I was a bit doubtful about how I'd cope with an Eastern inspired card. I was commissioned to create a card for a lady turning 40 who has lived in Hong Kong, and this is what I came up with....

I had some lovely DCWV paper in my stash, which was oriental looking but pretty and feminine too. I matted the paper onto blue cardstock and adhered it to an 8x8 card. I embossed a piece of white cardstock and adhered it to the centre of the card with foam tape. 'Fiona' & '40' were cut from more paper from the DCWV stack then adhered to the card with foam pads. The little pagoda was cut from dark green and red mirri card then adhered to the card front. A WOC cherry blossom floral arrangement, some die-cut leaves, sheer ribbon bow and a trio of pearls completes the card
