CPS161 ~ A Trip to the Orient

Thanks for stopping by! Today I am playing along with a sketch challenge at Card Patterns and I chose some new Bo Bunny Papers, Serenity. They have an far eastern feel I think. So fun, bright and exotic! So here's the sketch...

And my interpretation...

As mentioned earlier the DP is by Bo Bunny. After cutting each section, I distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink (Black Soot). I trimmed the bottom half with some ecru lace I had in my stash. I elected not to do a traditional sentiment panel and simply cut a coordinating circle with a scalloped black CS base. A few new Spellbinder dies (Mix'd Media Elements) helped me with the branches and dove. A few jet beads are lined around the edge of the circle for fun. The sentiment (Our Daily Bread Designs' Easter Blessings) is attached with a simple mini clothespin I picked up in the craft section of my local discount store. Fun and definitely a little funky! Have a great day! Blessings...
