A Little Bit Oriental ................

Hi everyone, what a busy few days I have had.  I went to the NEC on Thursday and shopped all day.  I got some lovely craft stash which I will show you tomorrow and then on Friday I went to York Xmas shopping for the weekend and only got back tonight. So that's the Xmas shopping nearly finished but I do have a couple of more things to get and I want to make some handmade gifts.

I have had no time to play with my new stash and I really can't wait! I will have to wait till after work tomorrow so lets hope the day goes by quick!

 So anyway onto my card, this was made using the one of Sheena's A little bit oriental stamps and embossing folders.  I think they work really well together.  This is not my normal sort of card but I really enjoyed making this one. This is an 8 x 8 card, for a change as I've not made many of them lately.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey x
