Hi lovely crafters and lovers of Clean and Simple - we have a new challenge  for you  at Addicted to Clean and Simple,  and as it's my turn to be the Hostess this fortnight,  I get to choose the Code Word, and here it is ~


I am so looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations. 


The beautiful Geisha stamp is "Cinnabar" by Stampington and Co.
The Cherry Blossom stamp is a very old one from a Habico set.
Happiness sentiment - LOTV.  Does anyone remember the amazing  film - 
The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, with Ingrid Bergman?
Ink - Black Archival, and a touch of red colouring with Copics.
SU cardstock - Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler.

What a great layout you've chosen for your oriental design! Love the crisp lines of it and you've used beautiful images and a perfect color scheme for this theme.

To beautiful for words Sylvia, although that won't stop me! Love that stamp with the Chinese lettering hanging down and her dress almost looks zentangled. The cherry blossom makes a perfect accent :-)
