May You Have Wisdom

Hello Friends!  Hello New Followers!  The theme of today's post is wisdom, and my wish for you is that you have wisdom all your days.  This is an appropriate theme because I have happy news to announce and a card to share today.  I have joined the Oriental Sketch Challenge design team on Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy TV.  I have been participating in their challenges for quite a while and love their new line of Oriental-themed stamps at their online store.  Such elegant images and introspective quotes to create with!  






I love to make my own background papers so I chose a background that uses alcohol inks on glossy paper sprayed with black webbing.  The paper set the tone of the card and since Oriental images look so wonderful stamped in black ink, I was off and running.  I wanted my dahlia folds to represent a fan or a flower and for the sentiment to be dominant.  That's the ying yang of it!

I hope you will join us at the Oriental Sketch Challenge and follow this sketch for your  card.  You can enter five new and different cards so you have five chances to win MFP stamps.  So you would show wisdom to enter!



I will spread this wisdom to the following challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge  Oriental Theme  3E
