Karin's Oriental Birthday Piece

It was Karin's birthday at the weekend and after our usual birthday game on the forum, I can now show my piece. Instead of a card I went with a hanging & just made an ATC for a tag. The background was one of my "happy" experiments & at the time I made it all I had in my mind was rich opulent summer colours. I actually made this in July but kept hold of it for Karin's birthday. My favourite part was adding the beading at the bottom. It took a bit of fiddling but eventually I got there.

Close up of beading. (Can you tell Im proud!)

Making it proved easier than photographing it!
