Asian Fusion Origami Challenge

I made this card for a challenge over at Capture the Moment for Nicole's Asian Fusion Origami Challenge.  I can't tell you how frustrated I got.  I had a project in mind to use an origami lotus flower as a topper to a cute little origami box to hold chocolates.   But, alas I had to resort to the kids origami projects as I just couldn't get my lotus flower to turn out right after several attempts and several different styles of paper.  :(

Anyway, I think this little "Welcome Little One' card turned out kinda cute.  I love making baby cards and it just so happens that I know a few people that have just had babies or are due really soon, so I'm sure this card will find a home soon!  :)

I used this pattern for my little origami stars over at Origami Fun.  I think I'll try playing with some of these patterns down the road....I'm determined that I'm gonna get that lotus flower folded out without ripping the paper!  

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
