Obon card

We made this tri-fold card at my stamp club meeting last night.

The front of the card shows the tree and a dancer in the hillside.
Then when you open the card, you can see more dancers below the lanterns.
Obon is a Japanese festival that honors departed ancestors and spirits. It's celebrated with dance that serves as a reminder of the gratefulness one should feel towards one's ancestors.
The characters in my card represent the dancers.

Thanks to Arlene for a truly amazing card.
