Turning Japanese

July 21st 2011
This is my card for this week's "Oriental" theme at the Three Muses Blog. Make sure you pay them a visit and see all the wonderful creations from everyone!


I've used one of the great digi stamps from the "Darlings of the Orient" range from CS Designs. This image is "Asian Square Sakura - Cherry Blossom". I've also used some of my favourite Japanese papers from my "stash" and I stamped a swirly vine image and placed the little folded flowers along it.


The little Dahlia folded flowers I found on a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers - they look great and I'm really happy with them. I think I'll definitely be using these little flowers again!


I've also entered this at the Clear it Out Challenge Blog as I have had some of this Japanese paper for years LOL!!!! Craft Us Crazy also have an "anything goes with a digi" challenge!
