Oriental bird

The Gothic Arches theme this week is turquoise - my favourite colour!!

I've added 3 extra challenges from 2Peas - a card of a different size, an unusual embellishment, and sparkle. I used the blue metallic RubOn on the coin to dull down the brightness of the gold. The difference in colour between a scan and a photo is amazing, but on my screen the scan is truer.
