Sophisticats Goes Oriental

Japanese Girl

That's the theme Tasha has set this week over at Sophisticats and it certainly got the DT scratching their heads, but as you'll see if you hop over to the blog, they all came up trumps with their gorgeous creations. So hope you can join us again this week.

For my card, I remembered I had a Mo Manning digi that I'd never used, so this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I've coloured this gorgeous image with PM's, found some lovely papers in my stash that looked a little bit oriental and glittered the edges of some chipboard flowers I had. The sentiment is from an old stamp set I've had for years, so that came in handy and I've used SU! Whisper White, Basic Black and some Pale Plum c/s which matched the papers really well.

I've used this week's sketch from Get Sketchy, so I'm entering my card over there as well.

We've some lovely stamped imaged up for a prize this week, so hope you can join us.
