Bit of the Orient

Hello my lovely crafty friends l hope you are all well and having some crafty time.  I have had an up and down week, not much happening in the craft room, lots of friends and family popping in as it was my birthday on thursday.  I always find occasions hard to celebrate since losing my son so did not want to make a big thing of it.  So..... thank you to my lovely friends for your quite thoughts and to those that sent me beautiful cards especially Heather,  l commented on one her gorgeous cards she had coloured on kraft and said l would like it for my birthday (cheeky me) as l thought it was amazing and l am now proud to have a Heather Masterpiece linked.
I spent yesterday afternoon in my little craft den playing and catching up and this is what l came up with just because l wanted to lol. I bought the stamp set a while back and only just inked it up

Happy Belated Birthday. I'm so happy for you that you had loved ones & friends to celebrate with you. Your card is so lovely. This is an adorable image, and I love the colors you chose. Usually the oriental motifs are in blues & pinks...very serene. I love the pop of these brighter colors with this pretty little geisha & her bird. Of course you have all the lovely embellies you are so expert at choosing to complement your image. This is just beautiful. Well done! TFS & hugs
