Beyond the Door challenge

I've been working on another April challenge for way too long now.  At Beyond the Door scrap challenges they have the photo below as inspiration. 

I took the black and white from the photo.  Starting with black cardstock I sprayed over my vine mask.  I found a couple of oriental stamps in my stash and stamped with white ink. 

I have no idea what the Japanese character stamps say, but I'm sure they are similar to the BoBunny letters from the oriental line I used.  I picked up these papers and the chipboard sheet last month.  The papers are all double sided and not necessarily oriental 'themed'.  I've used pieces of the black and red on a couple of layouts now.  And I love the turquoiuse. 

I took inspiration from the turquoise squares in the challenge photo but that is what caused me the most problems. The picture is very linear and I'm not. Once I had my photos neatly lined up I couldn't figure out how to keep going.  But I think it turned out all right in the end.  The mini banners on the sides are done with the chipboard shapes and border stickers. I put little gold jewels along the border stickers.

I punched the black border above the turquoise and added Kaiser jewels.

Check out the layout in the store for a closeup peak.
