Oriental Beauty

Hello Crafters!
                       Today I want to show you my card on the theme " The Silk Road " which means all things oriental at For this theme I chose one of my favorite image "Smelling the cherry blossoms" from Fred She Said. She was such a joy to colour.
 I coloured the image with my promarkers. She's been paired up with this gorgeous JAGS beautiful Flowers PP that has lots of blossoms on it. Here is the close up look:

 I created a Fence Gate panel at the bottom of the card to give the special dimension. I added a beautiful butterfly, some rose flowers, pink blossoms ,pollens, a crochet flower, some gems and some double coloured sparkling flowers.
To give it a more oriental look I added a Japanese fan and a soft pink coloured silk ribbon to it.
Look at the inside view:
 The sentiment is from Stampin'up -You're lovely set( which I won from crafting with Dragonflies). I heat embossed the sentiment using WOW sparkling snow glitter powder.
 I think the fence is a beautiful treat to my card to make it elegant.
Well, that was my bit of fun today!!!

The other supplies I used are:
Raspberry pink, ivory white and black CS
Memory Box Tessatina Border
Spellbinder Nestabilities majestic Elements
Bo Bunny Bold &Bright Dots PP

I would like to enter my card into following challenges: she is enjoying the sweet smell of cherry blossoms and roses at summer) colours-pink and black) color combo is pink and black)
