Oriental Theme Challenge

Found a new challenge on Saturday from Secret Crafter. This week's challenge is set by Tracie who has chosen a theme of ORIENTAL. Any project as long as it is oriental themed.
My card includes a folded paper kimono made of some unidentified paper from my stash. I layered this on a mat that I embossed with a Sizzix texture plate. Attached this to a mat of textured blue Bazzill CS and then to an ivory base card. I edged the mats with a Pilot Gold Marker Pen before I assembled.  The sentiment was stamped with Fiskars Basic Font Clear Stamps using versamark and embossing with Gold EP.  Sash is a gold mesh Ribbon. I learned this folding technique when I did this a similar card for my stamping group.
 Also entering this at Charisma Cardz Challenge: Add an extra fold to your card, maybe an easel style, gatefold, criss cross style, make a gift box, try some origami, etc.
Used origami folding technique to make kimono.

Thanks for stopping by!
