Japanese Fans

This is a card inspired by Japan. I didn’t have a coin so I made one using a picture. I used the technique for making buttons from a tutorial at Split Coast  Stampers.The orange paper is actually origami paper. The butterfly border punch is from Martha Stuart. The Embossed Kanji says. “Love”. All the paper and card stock are from my stash.

The card fits the following challenges;
365 Cards - Day 69- Supper Sketchy Sunday  Sketch
Alphabet Challenge - A for around the world. We would like to see you pick a country to theme on your work - Japan
