Japanese winter garden

Hi there! I've made a card! My output has been apalling lately. Well, I've been making some ATCs from old Christmas cards, just for fun really as there were lots of cute little images I couldn't bear to send to the Pre-school for cutting up. But someone has fiddled with camera settings and until I can sort that out I don't want to photo them. So, apologies for the terrible photo below. I'll try to improve it later.

This is the card I finished at the weekend. While browsing Jenni's lovely blogs today:

I discovered there are two oriental themed challenges going on now. How lucky!



The image is recycled (nothing new there then) and cut with a Labels 9 Nestie. Used Kraft card, and the Cuttlebugged paper is Swiss dots. Paper flowers are punchies from a small X-Cut daisy punch. NOt only is this my first ever oriental card, it's also the first time I attempted to put something inside.



This is the first card I've entered into challenges outside Trimcraft and doesn't have a hope of qualifying but I'm going to put it in for for The Corrosive Challenge http://corrosivechallengesbyjanet.blogspot.com/2010/02/challenge-53-asian-themed.html
which has the theme Asian and
SophistiCat Challenge
http://sophisticatchallenges.blogspot.com/2010/03/challenge-24.html
which is Oriental.

One day I will work out how to put the 'here' link instead of the full address! Thanks for visiting and any comments.
