Oriental delight...

It was kind of hard to get up this morning to get Maja to school.... too many lazy mornings during summer holidays... This afternoon I'll take her to her riding lesson. THAT is something she's looking forward to! It's good to be back to "normal"...

I managed to make another card yesterday evening. I think that must be a record... two cards in one day. I'm so slow when it comes to picking the right papers and embellies and stuff, so most days I don't have time for more than one card. Well MOST days I don't even have time for cardmaking at all... lol... Anyway, here's my card:
The oriental girl image is from the "Four dolls" set by Hero Arts and the sentiment is by Kort og Godt (it says Good Luck! in Norwegian). The girl is coloured with water colour pencils and I've also added a bit of shimmering water colour paint on top (it doesn't show wery well in the photos though). Punch by Martha Stewart. I used the same punch for the "ribbon" as for the bottom of the DP. I just cut a 1" strip of paper, coloured it green with the same colours that I'd used on the girl and then punched the border from both sides of the paper strip. Easy peasy!
I'm entering this card in two challenges:
2 Sketches 4 You - sketch #59
One Stop Craft Challenge - Challenge 93 -Oriental delight
.
Thanks for looking!
