paper. . . .

is the challenge at Casology this week:




I don't know how to make many things using origami folds, but I love this kimono and have used it a lot over the years:



The rubber stamp in the corner is from Red Pearl and was stamped with Delicata gold ink.  The meaning of it is written on the side of the wood mount:  "I know too much to be sure of anything".  I added a gold border with a Pilot gold metallic pen and layered the panel to a green card base.

Happy Sunday!
