Crafty Ann's Challenge #41 - 20 May 2011

Another fortnight has come and gone at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  I didn't manage to get around to as many blogs with not being well so I do apologise for that.  This fortnight the challenge at Crafty Ann's is oriental.
I have used Crafty Ann's cherry blossom fan which is gorgeous and I have coloured in with Promarkers, added one of my last gorgeous gem brads to the centre and a tassel.  The backing papers are Crafty Ann's abstract papers in bright pink, green and light pink.  I then used my alcohol inks on a piece of stampboard and let dry.  Then I stamped an oriental stamp on the top.  the card is finished off with a card ribbon sentiment, an oriental charm and some gold string which I have had for ages and ages.  It would be lovely if you could join in with the challenge this fortnight.  Click here to go and have a look.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
