Make My Monday - Oriental

It's time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and this time the theme is Oriental chosen by me. It seemed ages since I had seen any Oriental themed cards, which at one time were very popular.

I printed out a sheet of mages from a very old Joanna Sheen CD- Oriental Dreams.  I cut out one of the medium sized images and double mounted it on black and gold. The ribbon is another old item, part of a kit from C&C many years ago. I printed the sentiment on the computer using a font called Shanghai, and tried to match the background as closely as possible to the image.

So lets see you dig out some of that old stash and see your Oriental makes!

I'm  also entering it to CD Sunday Challenge.

  3. Gosh Sue, this takes m e back a few years!! Your card has made me think I should get out all the beautiful Oriental stamps I have. It's a beautiful card and love all the detail. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  4. Fabulous card Sue. I haven't seen an Oriental card for ages. They were all the rage when I first started to enter the CD Sunday challenges. It is nice to see one again.

  6. I love that CD Sue - I managed to pick up a copy on ebay recently after having missed out on it the first time round. Oriental has never fallen out of favour with me, as you know! You've made a beautiful card with it - thank you for sharing at CD Sundays AND for reminding me that I've not yet blogged my card for Make my Monday.
