Oriental thanks to mum

Updated on 7 May this card made Top 5 on Allsorts Challenge
Thanks so much!

Hi peeps,here's a card with oriental theme, have made most of my paper with rubber stamps images ( mostly oriental and from Hero Arts ) Have used Magnolia's Chinese Tilda too, so sweet!

The large piece of DP which I have made with brick red and old paper distress ink is a print with many chinese words of thanks.The big chinese word  in the round shape is " XIE " Thanks.I wanted to give my mum as a mother's day card, saying thanks to her .Have added some flowers and gems.and some round chinese knots too.One of the stamped image has a butterfly image , I added another butterfly and add on distress stickles and glitter stickles.

close up of the chinese knots

For the inside of the card I have repeat stamping of many coin images and added Happy Mother's Day on , for the top half .And repeat stamping of bamboo image, then add on 2 matting and a sentiment plus 2 flowers with gems in the centre.Oh you can also see 2 coins images on the cover.
