Oriental thanks

The inspiration for this card came from the beautiful photo on the Inkspirational blog.  I decided to use the tree stamp from the Chocolate Baroque Serenity set as I felt it had an oriental feel.  I added the twine as the card seemed too clean and simple!




I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Inkspirational #76 - photo inspiration
CASology week 134 - Monochrome
Just Add Ink #251 - thanks

Materials used:-
Tree stamp - Chocolate Baroque Serenity Stamp Set
Sentiment - Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh sentiments
Versa fine onyx black ink
Baker's twine from stash

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret
