A Touch of Eastern Promise

Good afternoon everyone from a sunny East Kent!! I've been continuing my 'being a good crafter' and using up the cutoffs etc from my scrap box, and whilst tidying up my card and paper drawers, came across some egyptian themed borders that I had forgotten about!
And it was these borders that inspired me to create the card below . . . .
The base card is 8" x 8" (my favourite card size to work with) layered with cutoffs of Tim Holtz grunge paper and gold mirror card, all edged on two sides with these borders from kanban.
A couple of diecut flourishes, marabou feathers and some contrasting turquoise blue gemstones with white pearly hatpins give it the bling factor, and the flowers (from my local pound shop) and an organza bow finish this card off a treat and hopefully I've captured a little taste of the eastern mediterranean with the design and colour choices.

Thank you as always for popping in. xxx
