CD Sunday challenge - anything goes #135


Here we are almost the middle of the year,  wow how it has gone fast, and time for another challenge at CD Sunday,  this fortnight it’s Jo to host.

For my card this fortnight took me out of my comfort zone, and although it’s ok,  I did struggle as it’s a subject that is not me,  I wanted something different and a bit of a challenge in itself,  you see this Far Eastern card is supposed to be Japan,  I was watching F1 race in Japan and it gave me an idea to make a card.  Why I have no idea,  Japan has always been a country I have no wish to visit as my mother was a Japanese POW,  I grew up with nothing being allowed in the house made in Japan,  I remember one Christmas as I opened a present she saw made in Japan,  the present was taken from my hand and thrown in the bin. 

Anyway I decrees,  I used. Joanna Sheens CD Eastern Treasures for the image and backing paper,  the storks I decoupaged,  matted the image onto green shinny card from stash,  The tree die and flowers were from die Tree for all seasons which was a free gift years ago from a craft magazine no longer in publication.  I sewed beads into the center of the flowers to represent cherry blossoms,  and added a red peel off of a Japanese building.

I hope you like my effort with this card,  the next challenge card will be better.
