Aurora Wings Challenge # 15

Aurora Wings Challenge # 15 

Hi everyone, It's time for a new challenge again from Aurora Wings, 
and this time our challenge theme is 

Dream Wedding 

I thought for my Aurora Wings DT make this time I would try something a 
little bit different and opted to go for a  TraditionalChinese Style Wedding 
 card instead of a western style Wedding card. The image I used for my card 
is from Mitzi's Aurora Wings Etsy Shop and the gorgeous image is called 

Traditional Chinese Bride with Phoenix

To make this tri fold card I used the following
Black A4 card, Gold Mirri Card, Spellbinders Die, Gold Organza and Satin Striped Ribbon, Gold Peel off corners and Chinese Double Happiness Symbol 

This is Mitzi's gorgeous "Traditional Chinese Bride and Phoenix" image you can find it HERE 
in her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop 

I coloured the image using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers in greyscale and gold colours. 
I also added Sakura Gelly Roll on her headdress too.

This is the card folded and tied with the Gold Organza & Satin Striped Ribbon and instead 
of my usual bow I've made a Dior Bow I was hoping to use a Chinese Knot but unfortunately 
it hasn't yet arrived :(

you will also see a selection of inspirational makes that my talented teamies 
have created too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges 


  1. What a fabulous design and striking colors, Lorraine! Your cards are always so elegant and beautiful! Love the die cuts, Chinese symbols and the gorgeous sparkle on the image. Wonderful work! xxD

  2. This is breathtaking, Lorraine! I love your elegant interpretation on the "New Beginnings" image. And I love your modern spin on the traditional Chinese style by opting for black and gold rather than red and gold. It's so fresh on the eyes and yet the piece is oozing with timeless elegance. :D Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration for our challenge at Aurora Wings.
