Red And Gold

... two wonderfully rich colours for the Color Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. With the Color Challenge we are reaching the end of our journey to the Far East. Red and Gold are the colours for good luck, happiness and wealth
To send good luck wishes I created a notecard using origami, tissue and handmade paper. The focal point of the notecard is a little folded frame (I had the instructions from the a little origami book but you can also find them online). I used the frame to display a Chinese coin and a little gem.

The Red of the notecard is relatively dark, more burgundy. This morning when going in the garden, I found a very different red - the first poppy flower had appeared!

You will find more good luck art at the Gingersnap Creations blog. Come and join us!
Wishing you a lovely weekend with lots of good luck, sunshine and flowers. Petra.
