ALLSORTS ~ Oriental

Good Morning, hope you enjoyed the Royal wedding.
I loved the car at the end ~ it was fab.
This week at ALLSORTS Amanda would like to see


I really don't have much oriental stash, 
but I adore dragonflies and got a gorgeous set for my birthday from my friend Nicola
  and it included several dragonflies and a waterlily, 
 which I thought was perfect for the theme!
I have used:
Prickly pear ~ Dragonflies (Sir Stampalot)
K&co paper
SU ~ Old Olive card stock
Nestabilities ~ Ovals & Scallop Ovals
Flat back pearls
Tim Holtz ~ Distess inks
ALLSORTS is coming up to it's 2nd birthday & 
we'll be holding a blog hop
 Please help spread the word by adding this pic to your sidebar
Will be back later with my BASIC GREY DT Card
Thanks for looking

Hi Fleur, the royal wedding was lovely wasn't it? I thought the TV people did it very well and they both seemed almost "normal"! Your card is lovely - oriental is difficult, but you've made it look easy. Love that dragonfly! Great colours and stitching (always love your stitching!) Hugs, Teresa x

I love anything Oriental...but don't have anything Oriental in my paper stash!!, It is just a crafting theme i have not mangaed to do. Your waterlilli and dragonfly fits the bill great I think. Love the sketch you have chosen too. Debbiexx

Nicola said...

Oh it's fab Fleur, I love it (not just 'cos I bought you the set either lol!) great colouring, the dragonfly is amazing and the green sets it all off a treat! Fantastic stitching, sadly that's still what my cards lack, but you do it so beautifully. Thanks for the kind link to my blog, your the best! Hope u enjoy the flower parade, would like to say I'll see u there but it gets so busy 'needle' and 'haystack' come to mind!
Love Nicola xxx
