SSC #18- Crafts 4 Eternity/Daring Cardmakers/Cute Card Thursday

Another fabulous sketch this week over at Crafts 4Eternity, come join the challenge and see the DT's fabulous cards!

Here is my take on sketch! Patterned fan paper is from DCWV Far East mat stack, other purple paper with dragonflies is from stack but I stamped the dragonflies using CTMH pansy purple ink. All other papers are from my stash as well as ribbon. Love stamp in corner is from a 6 pack of Asian stamps I have made by Stampcraft. The geisha image is a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm- isn't she cute?

Not only does this card work for C4E challenge, but it also fulfills the challenge at Daring Cardmakers. The challenge is :

Oriental Splendour-details below from site.

I would like you to make a card with an Oriental influence and the ‘Take Away’ I referred to is the twist in the tail.

When ever Oriental is mentioned most people, including myself immediately reach for Red and Black so I’m taking them away from you and removing them from the pallet of colours that you can use on your card.

This card also fulfills the challenge over at Cute Card Thusday. Challenge was to use something metallic on your card, I used brads and heart-shaped pin in geisha's hair.

Paper: DCWV Far East stack, stash
Inks:CTMH pansy purple
Stamps: geisha- The Greeting Far, dragonflies-old CTMH set, Love-Stampcraft
Tools: ATG, 2 1/2 scallop circle punch, 2 circle punch, threading water punch
Miscellaneous: pop dots, heart-shaped pin, brads, ribbon, chipboard
