Asian Inspired

This was tossed together quickly this afternoon so i could get it out of my head... (not that it was a bad thing, just a thought about it long enough kind of a thing) the inspiration challenge at stamp TV this week is based on an (hmmm, maybe its name is lotus? shaped lamp) and so, thinking about it i knew i had nothing from Gina K stamps that felt Asian in a way that had to do with that lamp shape. this could have went other ways i suppose but, that is how it stuck for me, so this is an Magenta flower stamped with Versafine Spanish Moss on a beautiful handmade paper that came to me from Mom_On_Line (Thanks Yvonne!) had to giggle when i started to write who made the paper and it is written in some form of Asian script (that i cannot read) this paper is very delicate so the adhesive was applied to the textured bazzill cs mat under it, and fortunately it was thick enough to hide the adhesive. considered sewing it but that didn't fit the theme in my mind so.. the pale green pp is not marked, the silver rimmed tag, letter stickers and mini brad are unknown. as is the sheer white ribbon. this was harder then it looks, it could become an addictive thing to play in challenges on a regular basis. ( who knew?) the fun part is the cards are not the usual ( look like everything else you will find scrolling down here)
