An oriental challenge from Crafty Ann

Don't you just love Fridays? I certainly do, its great to think its nearly the weekend and even better when its time for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog. This time Ann wants to see your Oriental projects and she has some gorgeous new oriental images too so why not pop over to Crafty Ann's Digi Shop and check them out. You don't have to use one of Ann's images to enter but we'd love it if you did. As always the winner of the challenge with receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's! 

I've used Crafty Ann's beautiful cherry blossom image and teamed it with one of Crafty Ann's polished stone bps. I've stamped some silhouette blossom corners and embossed in black EP.

The image is coloured with promarkers and cut out with nestie Labels 11, the edges have been inked with peeled paint DI and then matted on a black faux nestie. I've added some black ribbon, a stamped sentiment (from Chocolate Baroque), dots of black enamel accents and some cherry blossoms from WOC sprayed with starfish glimmer mist.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Anything goes challenge: Bingo challenge (my line is distressing,flowers,embossing)
2 Sisters: how does your garden grow
