Blooming cherries again

Japanese art is so unique and masterly, that rarely anybody wouldn't like it.
I like coming back to my richly ornamented origami papers, drawings of cherry trees in bloom, and scroll art samples every now and then, if only to look at them for a while.
I decided to go for a quasi-Japanese look in my latest card. Of course, it can only mean arranging together some elements of a distinct oriental look - I'm leaving serious attempts in copying the style for the true artists :P


Photobucket

The image of the cherry tree branch is downloaded from the internet, and the edge of it has been sponged. The sign means "love" (in Japanese, of course). The patterned paper is an original origami paper brought from Japan - it's a traditional design that's been used for centuries.

I'm entering this card into the last challenge in 2 Sketches 4 You, since I used the sketch provided.
Thanks for stopping by!
