Good Morning! Welcome to the last weekend of September. Everyone is already posting how many days until Christmas on their personal blogs. Seeing those numbers really makes it more depressing for me. I usually have started on my shopping by now but I have not one thing. As the children grow up the prices of the things go up. It's hard to get what they want. So seeing those count downs are not helping me have a Christmas spirit.

Nicecrane Designs is our sponsor for this week's challenge. There images are beautiful and they have everything you can think of under the son. They were kind enough to let us use a set called "Pictures of Japan." Each of the design team picked one of the four images that was with this set. I picked the second image to use for my card. This set was perfect for our Oriental theme this week. Oriental, I have to say, is one theme that I am the worst at. I don't know why but I have had troubles with that theme. So before I tell you more about my card and show you it, I want to tell you what Nicecrane Designs is giving out for the prize this week.

My idea for the card was for the lady to be walking on a bridge with water underneath with fish in the water. Then I wanted to add some flowers. I can honestly tell you my card has nothing of that on there. It turned out horrible. So, I used the image and popped it off the card with two fans. I hope you enjoy what I ended up making.

I do hope that you liked how it turned out. There is one thing that is actually from Japan. The gold flowers with the flourishes. I was in a group where you swap scrapbooking items with other women. I was lucky to  have someone from Japan and she sent me items that I had never seen before. I've used most of them already. Let me tell you the rest of the items that I used to make this card.

Thank You for stopping by and reading my post. I do hope you enjoyed the post. Feel free to leave a comment so I know how I did on this card.
