I caved in and decided to participate in this challenge of making cards inspired by countries around the world. This first country is Japan and I decided to use Tea Bag Folding (a type of Japanese paper folding) as the focal point of my card... The colors of the card were chosen to compliment the patterned paper used in the folded image.
My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.
