Cupcake, Mojo Monday, Pile it On and Simon Says Challenges

Hello to all of you and what is a beautiful sunny September day.
I am really not sure about this card at all.  You know sometimes when you lay it out it looks ok and then when you've stuck everything down - well it just doesn't feel right?  Well, this is one of those cards!
Anyway firstly here is the sketch I followed from Mojo Monday.

I love the sketches at Mojo Monday and hope to do many more cards based on their sketches.

I decided on an Oriental theme and the bird images and smaller piece of backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Oriental CD as is the sentiment. 
The piece of red blue and white backing paper is from an oriental paper pack from which was a freebie from Crafty Computer Paper that I got at the Hobbycrafts/Crafts for Christmas show one year at the NEC.
The white ribbon was from my stash and the lady in kimono image was one from Barbara at Clarity Stamp.
So the challenges I am entering this card for are:
Cupcake Challenge - Red, White and Blue
Mojo Monday - sketch
Pile it on - Birthday
Anyway, let me know what you think guys - good or bad - I don't mind.


  1. Hi Dawn

    Wow, four challenges well done you. It is certainly different from your usual card but I really like the oriental theme and the colours. The sentiment is lovely. Joanna Sheen's CDs are good.
    Good luck with all those challenges.
