Japanese Paper Art

This is a tiny pop-up paper scene of a Japanese celebration called Hinamatsuri (or Girl's Day). A 2.75 x 2.75 card opens into this charming scene, where even the star-filled trees expand to the side as the guests settle into place.

I found this at The Morikami Museum and have been looking for the right place to display it for some time now. But today things fell into place. I have it on my cream plate rack next to a glass cup filled with 3 pink roses.

Wishing you good health, great happiness and good fortune.

You know these type of cards are very popular right now. My mother gave me one for my (welcome to earth day)and when I opened it a Castle popped out at me, the inscription was, " The Princess has a birthday!" It was really sweet!
This card is very attractive too!
