Blossoms and Fans

Hello fellow crafters, and welcome to my newest follower, Penny. We met at a Stamp Camp last weekend.
Penny's Paper Crafty has a new challenge, and our theme this week is
Our generous sponsors this week are

I must admit when I was given the lovely Floppy Latte Design's 
Oriental Beauty to play with, I wasn't sure how I was going to 
bring her to life. I thought "mmm, oriental....washi paper, lots of 
red, and other bright colours...", then I found this lovely paper in
 my junk stash; remembered that I had a little gold fan; and the card 
took over, dictating what it wanted next. I am happy that it did.
The ribbon is metallic, and very shiny, but I could not get 
that to show up in the photo. I die-cut two of the bare
branches for the card front, then cut those into several 
pieces, rearranging them to fit the design.
The inside of the card co-ordinates with the front. These five 
flowers are punched from pearlised paper, with Liquid Pearls 
centres, while the flowers on the front are die-cuts.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

  10. Very stylish card Hun ... Fabulous and original colour scheme for an Oriental card. Love the woodland branch ... Looks very Oriental in this context but I bet it is very versatile.
