Kimono & a New Follower!

Hi all, I'd like to say a big Hi & a wave to Debs, my newest blogging buddy & follower!
Debs has candy, see my side bar for details & check out Debs blog while you're there!!
I also wanted to share this little ATC with you!
 I made it for a personal swap on the 

It was a fairly simple make! 
For the base I used red card stock then a matt of black. Next I ran a layer of red through the Big Shot in a Wood grain Embossing Folder (this was as close as I had to bamboo!)
I then attached the origami kimono. (I'd like to say I folded it myself but not this time!) This was mounted using foam tape. I then surrounded it with little punched leaves. Not sure who the punch is by but I got it at Southfields & it has 3 different sized leaves on it! I then simply finished with a silver oriental character peel off & some gems. This ATC has been in my head for a while & I finally got it out! Yay!
It's in the post so I hope it gets there tomorrow!
Hope you like it & if you'd like to join in the swap pop on over to the forum & add your name to the ATCswap list! (The swap is simple, there aren't really any rules as such! All you have to do is  make one ATC & swap it with someone else! It can be any theme, something new or something already created the choice is yours!
