Oriental Cards

I was having a little play today, (it was my reward to myself for cleaning the windows LOL!), and managed to make a few Oriental cards using items from the RAK's I received last week.

I confess I've never been particularly drawn towards the 'Oriental' style of card making and that's why I found it quite difficult to come up with anything inspiring.

That will also probably explain why I'm not very comfortable with the finished results.

However ... I had a try and here they are.
Thank you all for looking.

I have never tried oriental but you have made some lovely cards there. I particularly love the one with the green and the jewelled butterflies and dragonflies......

Oh crikey ... thank you for your kind comments. Maybe you are seeing something in them that I am missing ... or maybe I just will never have the 'feel' for Oriental that others can achieve.
I really appreciate your encouragement though.
