WCMD - Japan

I hope everyone had a chance to play with some of the challenges across the web for World Card Making Day. I had grand visions and plans but, alas, things required at home took precedence AND I'm also in the midst of preparing something new for everyone! (stay tuned for more!) I got a chance to play along with the first challenge posted by Nichole Heady at PaperTrey Ink. We were to create a card that was reflective of Japan. I came up with this little goodie.

Since Origami is a Japanese paper folding art, I used some beautiful origami paper that my daughter had given me. It's so beautiful and delicate and shimmery. It made the perfect focus for my card which needed only a few accents to finish it off.

I used the Weekend Sketch #100 from Beate for my layout,  added a few prima flowers, a simple sentiment and some embossing and paper piercing on the Raspberry layer. Here's a close up although you still can't see the delicate shimmer on this pretty paper.

Papers: Enchanted Evening, White, Raspberry Fizz, origami
Stamps: PTI - Mega Mixed Messages
MISC: Primas, pink floral rhinestone embellishment

Hope you had a great weekend - thanks for stopping by!
