Super Simple Oriental Thankyou Card

I was in a hurry and needed a thank you card so I threw this one together. I used a wood mounted oriental thank you from ???? and the remainder is from Stampin Up. I bought yards of the cord and tassels from Walmart way back when. I find that I like the simplicity of some cards more than others. I wasn't sure about this one so I made the next card using some origami paper that I had on hand along with the same wooden stamp.
What do you think?

I love the gold emboss with the colors on the simple card. The DP on the second gives it a complete switched look. They are both great!

These two cards are just stunning. If you can do such stunning work in a few min. I hate to see what you can do in a day :). I am a new DIVA, sending out love.

Wonderful cards, entirely different and each special in its own right. Using the panels like this is reminiscent of Asian screens. I like that tassel and cord, too.
