Around the World Challenge

Vicky is starting an ongoing challenge, and we are to make a card based on the photograph from various places around the world.  Here is this week's:


Gorgeous, huh?  Here is my take on it; I was taken with the colors, and the exotic feel of her picture.


Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CL401 Speckled Ornaments, CG102 Antique Brocade, cream and dark teal cardstocks, K&Co orange/tan printed cardstock, faded jeans distress ink, Prima flower
