Bonsai Birthday Card for My Son

My son, who grew up with three older sisters and one younger sister, will be celebrating his birthday this week on March 1st. Since he was a teenager he has been interested and influenced by Asian combat, design and furnishings. He even attempted making a Bonsai tree. Recently I purchased the Pagoda cartridge and obtained Asian cuttlebug folders. What would be more fitting than to make him a birthday card with an Asian motif. The 5.25 X 6.25 card was designed using the Gypsy and the pieces were cut using the Cricut Expression.
