Asian Thank You Swing Card

Today I made this "Thank You "card for Juliane - she was so kind to hand me a cute little plastic box filled with Origami paper this past weekend...............I know she sometimes visits my blog and hopefully she will be delighted with this card when I hand it to her later this weekend.
Here's the card opened:
She was painted using a aqua pen with black and real red inks. Cut out and popped with dimensionals. Some gold adhesive rhinestones in her hair buns. The flowers were punched using a retired SU punch, attached with mini glue dots.
