An Asian theme with Ruby

Hi everyone.

It's time for a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.

Our theme for this fortnight is Asian.

I found this quite a challenge as it's not my usual style. I started off trying to make an origami kimono but really wasn't happy with it...Then I remembered I have a Bonsai tree cutting die and within a few minutes had created this...

First I cut the tree from black card. Next I cut a circle from white card, which I then inked with Fired Brick Distress ink. I've then cut the next two circles up in size, one in white and one in black. 
After this I die cut a square in white and the next size up in black. The sentiment is one which came free with a magazine recently, the white rectangle being cut with a die and the black using a perfect partner ruler at 1/16. The circles and squares are Tattered Lace dies and the tree and rectangle are Spellbinders. The overall card size is 4x4.

Now it's you're turn. I do hope you'll join us.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
