World Tour

I'm back tonight with my cards that I made for the PTI World Card Making Day challenges. Nichole Heady took us on a world tour!

Up first is Australia and here is the inspiration



And my card



Next stop is India:



I was inspired to use red and gold and lots of shine:



After, we go to Mexico:



I went with lots of bright colors and some stitching:



Final stop is Japan:



I searched a bit on my own for some inspiration and found an awesome website with art from the Freer and Sackler Galleries , which is located in Washington DC. This is the beautiful painting by Ogata Kenzan off which I based my card:



And my card:



Thanks for taking a look!

Gosh you've been a busy crafting bee!! I love all your cards but have to confess that it's the Aussie one that makes me smile the most! Loving those stars on such bold cardstock and the aborginal-esque dots are just scrummy too! May be another CASE from you - sorry! ;D

Your cards look great. Funny how both of our India cards are so similar. I think we both did the same thing last week with Hot Air Balloons. Great Minds and all!
