International Post...

I'm amazed at how extravagant the celebration is for World Card Making Day, and I can't believe how many cards I am making. The challenges are too irresistable to pass up. For this card, I decided to combine Nichole Heady's Japanese-inspired Challenge with a very cool Color Challenge based on the flags of the world. I chose the country of Seychelles and it's flag of blue, yellow, red, white, and green. It's been years since I've created any origami, and I waxed nostalgic as I dusted off my old origami books (gifts from my favorite uncle) and folded this stork with its "special delivery."
