My Lovely Friends,

For my sis

Hi peeps,
You know how I'm loving my distress inks at the moment, well here's another one done with them lol,
It's my sisters Birthday next week and she loves oriental as do I funnily enough, so what better image than this gorgeous Magnolia,

When I saw this gorgeous paper from the Basic Grey Curio pad it just said oriental to me, maybe I'm strange, no Mandy don't answer that lol,
I've followed the sketch over at Magnolia Down under so of course I'll put it in their challenge lol,
Just Magnolia ~ anything goes optional buttons,
I've coloured the flower with the same colour ways to hopefully coordinate with  the look of the papers or as near as I could any way, the raffia I wove twice round the card and attached the coins using pin flair gel, and the fans are fixed that way too, the borders are of course a Doo Hickey die which I've added a little lace for character and to lighten the effect, 

Colours used:
Antique linen, tattered rose, vintage photo,
Walnut stain, pumice stone, 
Aged Mahogany, brushed corduroy,
Black soot,
I've again painted my background I'm loving this look and it's such fun to do he he,
Hope your all having a lovely day with lots of fun!
see you soon,
Ps Back tomorrow with some Candy for my up coming Birthday!
