Simon Says - Oriental

Phew! I think I made it in the nick of time. This is my entry for the Simon Says - Oriental challenge over at
I am gulilty of not joining in the SS challenges lately. Due to time comstraints I have to alternate the challenges where I can. At the moment I am rushing as I have to go to band practice tonight and haven't had my tea yet!
This is my one and only Oriental stamp and I had a battle to find it. Yes I know I didn't need to use a stamp, I could use the relevant colours, but I thought that as I had got one I may as well use it :o)
I tried to distress the main image but I am not very good at it, haven't had enough practice! I stamped three times so there are three layers although it's difficult to tell here. I coloured with my Copics and highlighted the bloom with Sakura Stardust pen :o)
BC is Bazzill
Stamp is from Hampton Arts
Sakura Stardust pen
Black pearlised card for mat
Ribbon and brads from stash
