This fortnight's beautiful photo at FOR YOUR INSPIRATION which Steph has provided for us to work with, screamed "Oriental" to me, however, it might scream something else to you!! That is the joy of working with these stunning photos - we all see something different in them.

Real Red card - Stampin' Up

Your card really captures the oriental feeling of the picture. I might have to get out my oriental papers that I got in the Christmas sales. Rachel.
