CD Sunday - Let's go Oriental

Hello again ladies.
Now! Oriental - I do love everything oriental, which is good because that is the theme this week over at CD Sunday Challenge.  Here is my card - all about it afterwards;

The image & background paper came from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams.  I have mounted the image onto some blue pearlised card that went quite well with the ladies robe.  Then I printed one of the background papers that went with the image it has repeats of the main image - this I also mounted onto the blue pearlised card.  I could not find any blue ribbon that would do then remembered my Promarkers & a reel of white ribbon I had.  Problem solved.  I wrapped this around the background card then laid the image on 3-d tape over it.  It needed just a little something else.  A couple of years back I showed my club members how to make the Chinese knots with Mizuhiki cord.  But did I have any blue & more importantly would I remember how to do it.  Fortunately the answer to both questions was - yes.  A closeup of the Mizuhiki knot ;

A really enjoyable card to make.

Thank you for dropping in - please call again & please leave a comment.

A gorgeous card from a fab CD, this is one of my favourite CD's too. Lovely image and a good use of Promarkers to colour the ribbon and the Muzuhiki knot, would love a tutorial on making it.
Thanks for joining us at CD Sunday this week.

Thank you for putting on the close up of the knot. I have just managed to make one by copying the photo. Hope you don't mind.

Of course I don't mind Sue. after all the designs are not mine they are known Mizuhiki designs.
Gosh, the picture must have been nice & clear to do it that way.
