For my Valentine's 'Baby'

My daughter's birthday is Valentine's Day.

She told me that her favourite card that I ever made her was one I made with a WS Designs screen card template. That card was in white and green, so this time I cut the screen from red card and die-cut heart apertures.

I was inspired by the 'Asian'  challenge at Artful Times and decided to give it an Oriental theme.

I used an Oriental woman image from Debbi Moore (although I don't feel these women look very Oriental - more like Europeans with kohl and kimonos - very pretty though).  Also on the view above, I used Papermania Oriental stickers, Debbi Moore cherry blossom stamp, Marianne die bird on branch and Sizzix architectural corner.

In this view you can see Oyster Stamps Chinese (?) script stamp, Cheery Lynne Fancil Flourish die and PSX bamboo stamp.  The back panel will be for my message.
This is what it looks like folded up.

As well as Artful Times, I'd like to enter this for:

This is so striking and what a fab Oriental feel. Love the gold birds and flowers. I have the same CD-ROM and that image always reminds me of Cheryl Cole!

Thanks for linking up with us at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. Hope you can join us again soon.
