Off the Edge

Less is More challenge week 10.
This week Chrissie and Mandi  set us the challenge  of a one layer card, with an  'off the egde'  theme. There are some brilliant examples to see, here .
With all that has happened  in Japan over the past few days and with a crafty friend who has family working  out there, my card  has an oriental look.
The stamp on the edge is by Stampington, the bit you cannot see is her hand resting on a book, with joss sticks burning behind, you can see a waft of smoke.
I am not sure which way up the writting should be, so please forgive me  if its upside down, I decided that sideways might work on this card.
I used chalks to colour the image.
Thankyou  for stopping by to take a look, it is lovely to read your comments.

    What a beautiful intricate image
    I too like the positioning of the 'sentiment' I worry at what could be written with these symbols too lol

  18. I too worry about what foreign script says and if in fact it is appropriate for the card in question!
    Yours looks great and our thoughts indeed are with those suffering in Japan at present.
    Thanks for entering and we'll see you next time!
