TAD 2011 - Day 3: Influx from Asian Culture

Happy Chinese Lunar/New Year :0)

Well, the card of today is somewhat inspired by the Chinese New Year, but is actually more to do with the Japanese culture.

Decided to try out a origami kimono (my first attemt) and wanted an red, Japanese style background. The solution was to attach part of a napkin with decoupage laquer to my cardstock, and the kimono is made of imported Japanese paper. The sentiment is the kanji sign for "beauty" to embrase my fondness of Japanese kimonos.
