Oriental Thank You

I was thinking about this challenge at Allsortschallenge Blog, with theme being Oriental. My mind wandered to Oriental screen and then fabric. Over at the Moxie Fab World, Cath is having a tissue paper challenge and thought about tissue and  Faux Silk technique. So I created this card with all the elements in it and using the colors from PC Color challenge.
 Supplies: Stamps (Hero Arts, Rubber Stampede), Ranger distress ink, Perfect Pearl

 I wrinkled the tissue and then highlighted it with some distress inks. I then stamped the image with Gold and Pink inks. After that glued it to white card and added perfect pearls. I cut the strip and edged it with pink ink. I then adhered it to gold card. For the Lantern, I stamped it on Vellum and embossed it with Gold and hanged it to the thread with some bling. To finish, I added the perfect pearl powder all over the card and stamped the sentiment. Its quite difficult for me to capture the soft Pearl shine in a photo. Hopefully the close up would show it better.
I made this for a friend, who really loves Oriental theme.
