Art Neko - Happy Birthday Iris Fold Kimono

Happy Valentine's Day.   I hope love is in the air in your little corner of the world.  It is dreary and rainy in mine, but I am sure Cupid is out there somewhere.  ~smile~

Yesterday for the Technique Lovers challenge at Splitcoast, the challenge was to do Iris Folding.  I have never done Iris folding, but always wanted to.  Since I needed a card for  Art Neko Rubber Stamps today, I thought it was only appropriate to Iris Fold a Kimono.    I used the Art Neko Vertical Text stamp.   I stamped Happy on one side and then birthday on the other.  I stamped in Versa Mark and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thanks, for coming by today.
