Michael Strong Pink Challenge - Japanese Kimono Card

Here's a new card I created using vivid, optimistic colors - mainly shades of pink, as required by the October challenge at enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group .
I gave it to a friend as her birthday card. 

Shocking pink spotted CS for the card's basis
Striped patterned paper
Shocking pink spotted CS
A recycled piece of a cereals package
Martha Stewart Large Punch around the Page - Double Arches set
Michael's Strong's Cloisonné Kimono stamp
Embossing ink
Gold EP
ProMarkers - I used shades of pink
3D foam tape
Clear and pink bling

I layered the patterned paper, and then I used the shocking pink spotted CS,
its corners punched using Martha Stewart Large Punch around the Page - Double Arches set (I used only the corner punch here).
I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Kimono on a piece of cereals package (I say: reuse and recycle whenever possible!)
I heat embossed the stamped image with gold EP.
Then I carefully cut the Kimono using TH scissors. I didn't use Michael Strong's die cutters here because the cereals package was very thick.
I colored the Kimono using ProMarkers and glued it 3D for extra dimension.
I added several clear and pink blings to add some glam.
