Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge - Taste of the Orient - DT Card

Hi everyone, two cards in one day.  Yay!!!
This card is my Design Team card for the newest challenge over at Cardmadfairy Digi Days.
This time we are asking for 'Tastes of the Orient'.  If you are looking for some fantastic Oriental style Digi images to use you should look here at Jenni's new releases.  Best bit they are only 99p each.

This this challenge is sponsored by Little Claire be sure visit and check out the shop.

You have until the 8th of July to enter this challenge.   Remember you must use a Digi image on your creation for a entry.  However, if you use a Cardmadfairy Digi image you can enter as many times as you like.

Now onto my card.  I started with a grey base card which I folded into a gate style card.  The right hand side I had a strip of metallic red card then two different black and gold origami papers which actually come from Japan.  (Our exchange student last year gave them to me as a present).  The right side I have added a strip of gold vellum and then embossed the metallic red card in my 'Branches' embossing folder. I add the the lovely red brad to the bottom right corner.  
I coloured Cardmadfairy's 'Oriental Fairy' with my copic pens and then added a touch of Kindy Glitz to the wings and gold to her outfit.  I cut her out with my Oval Spellbinder and while the die was still on I chalked around the edge with gold metallic chalk.
Finished the card with these fantastic gold chinese stickers.

Ok, now it is your turn.....I can't wait to see what you come up with.
