Another Oriental Bellies Card

It's really interesting when you get an assortment of papers and embellishments that you didn't choose yourself. Yes it's a challenge, but it is also a lot of fun. Case in point is the paper on the inside the card. Would I ever have chosen it? I doubt it. Did I have a bit of a hard time incorporating it into my design? You bet. Was it fun? Without a doubt!
I also used on this card Spellbinders Bamboo Edgabilities. This is no longer available, but I'm sure you could find it on EBay. I enhanced the embossed areas with gold rub and buff. Everything else is from Hearts in Touch. The stamp is from The Oriental Silhouettes sheet #105. The adornments are all from this months embellishments package which you can see in the post before this one.

BTW, look at the temperature to your right! It is a wonderfully cool day in the Desert Southwest! You can bet your lucky stars we won't be seeing many more (if any) days like this in the near future. The dreaded heat of the summer is fast approaching and we had our first 100 degree day just 2 days ago. But Oh I forgot! It's a dry heat, LOL!

See you next time!
