Good Morning. Hope you're enjoying the first weekend of fall. Of course, our first day was rainy and did stop before my daughter's 16th Birthday Bonn-Fire. We totally went and did something different then her friends have done in the past years. We had hay bales, smores, and a lot of food and cake. We even have food left to have dinner again today. It did get very cold so us old folk came in for the heat of the house and leave her to her friends. She had a great time and that I am grateful for. It was all worth it in the end.

The East Wind is sponsoring this week's oriental challenge. They were kind enough to let me choose one of their images. The image I chose is called "Aurora Cabbage Butterflies." The name just screams oriental. The East Wind has very beautiful images. I love the way the hair flows or is put up in some kind of fashion. I love butterflies and the dress the lady was wearing. I can honestly tell you that I'm still trying to get the hang of making oriental cards. I don't know why but my mind goes blank when I think of making something. Maybe if I get an oriental book and read it, I could learn more and then know more of what to make. So before I show you what I did make I want to tell you what the East Wind is giving as a prize this week.

The Est Wind

You will have no problem finding something that you will like from their etsy store. So, here is my interpretation of an oriental card.

Since their was butterflies in the name I wanted to put butterflies on the card. The other paper I wanted to use I thought would be perfect but couldn't come up with anything else to go with it. So I used the butterfly paper and embossed cardstock with a butterfly folder. The flowers did remind me of oriental so I hope they so match the theme. Here are where the items came from.

Cardstock -- The Paper Studio
Paper -- Colorbok
Embossed Butterflies -- Cuttlebug Folder
3D Butterfly -- K&Company
Flowers -- Wild Orchid Crafts
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

I hope you enjoyed the way I made my oriental card. I wanted to make the dress with different colors so I hope you can figure out all three colors. This did take me a little while. I can't wait to see what your take is on oriental. So go to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter your card. You will also find information on how to become a member of our design team. We really do have fun and were like a family. Have a Great Week and I will see you next week with a different challenge
