February birthday card

One of my co-workers LOVES everything Japanese (especially Geishas). Using the Kanji symbols from the Cricut cartridge, Pagoda seemed like a no-brainer for this February birthday card.

The red and black card stocks are Bazzill; the gold beneath the Kanji symbol is some old stash from the 90's. The pink floral paper was sent as part of a set of lovely Japanese papers. My daughter (who gifted me the paper at Christmas) knows the name of the paper, but it escapes me now. I used my favorite Pioneer double-sided mounting tape to adhere the various layers together. The flowers are primas with a gold brad (maybe Making Memories?) to hold it together.

I'm going to Japan later in the year and I think I should be able to make more good use of the Cricut Pagoda cartridge.

Thanks for looking.
