Oriental Birthday

Hello everyone,

No Christmas cards today. I was looking through my list of 'appealing challenges' and I came across last Monday's Crafty Cardmakers challenge was an oriental theme. I have some great papers and stamps that suit this theme perfectly so I didn't want to miss out.

The background paper is DCWV Far East stack. The gold layer is Anna Griffin Christmas Scrapbook cardstock pack. The middle layer is Stampin' Up Perfect Plum. The image is Hero Arts Decorative Bamboo stamped in Soft Suede and Color Box Bronze. The sentiment is of unknown origin from my daughter's craft stash.

I love the colours in this card. I didn't want to do a really girly card and I think this really works. It is all about the paper and the theme so I deliberately kept the sentiment small and unobtrusive.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. I love the simple lines of this card. Great BP, great image, they go perfectly together.

    Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.
