I am a lot happier with this than my Asian Fusion Mess from a couple of sketches back - though my sister, who got that as her birthday card, loved it.
Went simple for this one, have a lot on this afternoon.
Cream A2 base. Scraps of old paper with Chinese characters on it, outlined with gold pen. Brown organza ribbon. Kodomo image stamped with black on cream, distressed and layered up on gold - then popped up on foam. I stamped the little calligraphy character separately, punched it out, edged with gold and added a page pebble.
If I get more time I'll be back again later to do something fancier - it's a fun layout to work with.

Very nice. I like the touch of black with it.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
