....A Quirky Challenge

Over at Quirky Crafts the challenge for this coming fortnight is AROUND THE WORLD. I was thrilled (and VERY nervous!) to be asked to be on the GDT for this challenge, my first time ever, and here's the card I came up with.

I used Dovecraft 'Eastern Promise' papers, a triptych layout (3 panels) and digi images coloured with Promarkers are from a set I purchased from Digi Stamp Boutique. The Japanese symbol is 'friendship' and I created the sentiment on the computer. I finished it off with an organza ribbon and some red gems. I hope you like it!

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
OSAAT - Old Stash, New Stash (the 'new' is the Dovecraft Eastern Promise papers, and the 'old' is.....everything else!!)
Sir Stampalot - Travel the World (Jan. 1st)
Craft Your Passion #35 - Anything Goes
