Oriental Lady

Something different for today's card.
This card was made by iris folding a square, but instead of securing just the ends of each strip, I have secured the whole length to a base card. Then once the square was completed, I was able to cut a circle from it, to form the parasol top, without all the iris folding falling to bits. This means that you do not need an aperture in the card. The card was completed using black straight line peel offs for the struts, and a die cut lady.
I hope that kind of makes sense.
The challenges I am entering this card in are;
Cute Card Thursday - make your own (parasol top)
Papertake Weekly - do something different (different way of using iris folding)
Sketchy Colours - green and gold
