PTI's Origami Challenge

Today's Anniversary challenge from Nichole @ PTI is "to create a project that somehow integrates origami of some sort or another". Being short on time today due to laundry, cleaning for returning company and going to get my hair done, I decided to make this little card which was inspired by a card purchased for me by an Asian friend a few years back. She got it for me because she thought I'd be able to duplicate it by hand. I love how it turned out, except if I were doing it over I'd not use white core cardstock. It was impossible to get the crisp, sharp origami folds without the white core showing. Well, nothing ventured, nothing gained, huh?!!! I still LOVE it & will do another, I'm sure . . .now IF I could win the Asian Fusion stamp set somehow . . . hmmm . . . .
Paper: Two Cool Double-sided CS (Costco); pink liner (stash)
Stamps: PTI'sTurning a New Leaf (Leaves), Out on a Limb (flower), Everyday Classics (Anniversary set)
Ink: PTI's Ripe Avocado (stamped off once) & Raspberry Fizz
Tools: Craft Knife
