LOTV Oriental

Good evening my friends.  I had a lovely bouquet delivered today such a lovely surprise to lift my spirits a bit  and l won the last oldie but a good challenge too, thanks ladies. Oh and l forgot to tell you my hubby had a nice lottery win last week :)  Whats his is mine :)))
I spent the most of yesterday in my craft room faffing about - l bought the 2 Geisha stamps at Harrogate a few weeks ago and they have been on the edge of my desk waiting to be inked up. They are just stunning but need a careful hand when colouring as they are quite detailed. I set too gathering all this oriental out of drawers and shelves l had already decided my colour scheme and a few years back my daughter bought me the gorgeous Oriental set of papers/brads etc by Papermania - the papers are just stunning all reds and golds. I have some Aspects of Design stamps that have not seen daylight for years so they came out too..   I was surprised just how many oriental stamps l had once l started looking lol. 

Here is the card, although the photo does not really do the rich colours justice, l decorated the inside too.
