3 challenge's in 1 card :-)



I followed the Papertake weekly sketch by Dawny, fabulous sketch eh !!The Daring Cardmaker Challenge is to make an oriental card but we're not allowed to use red/black. I chose the colours to fit in with the Colour Create Challenge too which is Peach/Aqua
The main fan image is by Judikins, as is the bamboo on the L side of the card. The Bamboo on the R side, the aqua papers and the brad in the flower centre are from papernania.The sparkly corners were fun to do, they're double sided sticky tape shapes by papermania which you just sprinkle with glitter or fun flock. The asian text is by Hero Arts
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments :-)
