Oriental card

Time is flying I've had a wonderful two weeks off work spending time with my kids. We've had a great time, but it's back to reality this morning and up early for work again. The kids are having fun with their Grandparents this week getting spoilt no doubt. 
I want to share with you my latest DT card for  Lexis Creations
We have a new challenge with is Oriental
Our sponsor is Letraset
 Here's my card, I've used a digi image called Okichi designed by Lexi which you can find at Fairy dust crafts

Recipe: The digi image is coloured in with Promarkers. I bought the papers from The glitter pot  except the writing card which is from my stash. I'm not too sure where I got the other bits from either. I had to go raiding my stash to find things that went the theme/colour of the paper as it's not a colour scheme that I seam to use often I'd had the flowers and charms for a while
Don't forget to check out the other DTs oriental cards here
