{Asian inspired Climbing Orchid card }

This stamp set and bundle has been on my wish list for a while.  As the bundle is retiring (when you buy the bundle there a 10% discount) I thought I'd grab it before June.

This card has a definite Asian theme, from the stamps used to the actual composition.  By looking at art and architecture from other cultures I'm inspired to translate the theme onto the cards and paper crafts I design.
