Eastern Blooms



I have very quickly made up this card for my SU team's challenge. I should be doing heaps of other things as I only came home yesterday from housesitting but just wanted to make a card!


As these colours called Oriental to me, I decided to use the SU set Eastern Blooms and stamped and embossed them on Real Red and Elegant Eggplant card. Everything is self explanatory I think.


Card: Elegant Eggplant, Real Red textured, Black
Ink: Versamark, Elegant Eggplant
Stamps: Life Definitions, Eastern Blooms
Elegant Eggplant and Black ribbon
Scallop Edge Punch
