Crazy for Blue, White, and GOLD

First an apology for the poor photo.....this has been a week of fighting with the camera.....and the camera seems to be on the winning team....I just could not get rid of the blue tones in the background.  Sorry.

Anyhoooooooo....Cindy is our hostess for the Crazy4Challenges for the month of April.  Today she challenged the Crazies to use blue, white and one other color of our choice.  My color choice was GOLD.  I used origami paper for the background.  I paper pieced the kimono/yukata and the obi.  I used an Oriental  embossing folder on the gold die cut panel.  I heat embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder.  The image and sentiment are a PI set from My Favorite Things.

Now be sure to journey on to the Crazies Blog to see the fab blue, white and  ? creations by the rest of the DT.  I am sure you will be inspired and awed.
