Artfully Asian

I made this card for our SU Team challenge. The challenge was to use the colours in this pic or the pic itself to inspire us to make something. I thought Oriental with the black, red, gorgeous purple and touch of gold. So out came SU Artfully Asian set.
I decided upon SCS SC197. Also, because again I need a workshop card, I've kept to SU supplies, reasonably simple and cost effective.
I embossed the Real Red layer with the leaves out of Artfully Asian and also the black layer with the wording, both in gold. Paper pierced the photo corners embellishment and added gold brads to try and balance it. There is an expanse of Elegant Eggplant showing but I think I'll leave it ├žause the Real Red layer is busy enough.
Cardstock - Basic Black, Brushed Gold Metallic, Real Red, Elegant Eggplant
Ink - Versamark
Stamps - Artfully Asian
Accessories - gold brads, photo corner punch, piercing mat and tool, gold embossing powder, Elegant Eggplant narrow grosgrain ribbon.
Thanks for looking.

Leigh, your card is lovely. I love the gold embossing. Thanks for the comment on my blog. It is hard not to feel guilty. I did have fun shopping, I bought some cute Hero Arts stamps.

Hey Leigh - you, Jean & Karen have all created such beautiful cards using the color challenge this week (I really need to look into doing this soon). I just love the deep purple color and the red brings it out even more.
