a card for WCMD Challenge #1
When I found out that PTI has some challenges to celebrate World Card Making Day, it was already Sunday night... duh!
I just had to try and make at least one to join the fun! When I saw that WCMD Challenge #1 was to find inspiration in Japan, the beautiful patterns on kimonos and Japanese Washi jumped in my mind.
Here is a card that I came up with using some Japanese Washi that I have sitting around.
I love the beautiful and intricate patterns that Japanese Washi have. This one is so subtle in colors but so glorious with the gold foil on it. It reminds me of the humble nature of Japanese people.
Sorry about the bad photos... I had to take them under artificial lighting after I found out that the deadline for this is actually 7 "AM" EST and not 7 pm EST!!! Haha... This happens to me a lot.... =) I'll replace them with better ones later.
EDITED: I replaced the photos at 2:16 pm.
