Here is my card done with Oriental Birds.

What a pretty set this is.  I used some design paper and embossed it with my bamboo embossing folder.  I used some shabby shutters distress ink on top to give it a little color.  I wanted to focus on the large bird so I added some grass and distress ink around the bottom of his feet.  The bird in flight has a soft blue ink around the top of the card to look like sky.

This is a great oriental stamp set for your collection.  You can find it in the store  HERE.
Stop by and have a look.
