Something Different

Hi All,

Just thought I would share this little domino card I made for a friends birthday.  This is her first birthday back in the UK after living in HongKong for the last 9 years , and as its Chinese New Year, I thought she might like it.  Unfortunately, I didn't upload the piccys before I gave it to her and for some reason they wont upload round the right way!!  as you can see they were the right way in photo gallery when I  put the watermark on them.

I got my DH to drill 2 holes in the domino's before I used Alcohol inks, and stamped using an Oriental  set of foam stamps - the first stamps I ever bought!  The card was cut and folded, stamped and distressed with Tattered rose and Worn Lipstick.
 To finish off I threaded organza ribbon through the holes and added some beads.
Sorry for giving you a pain in the neck!!, but I though it too pretty not to share.

I am entering this in Crafty Bloggers Network - Oriental
  Ooh la la - Seeing Double - same image twice - (on front and inside)
  Secret Crafters - Use Ribbon
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

That's it for now and thanks for looking.
