Distressed Rainbow Stripe ATC

 I played with the dimensions in the Distressed Rainbow Strips tutorial from the Technique Junkies last newsletter, and made it work for an ATC.
 

The fan is Stampin Up (retired), the Kanji is Mark's Finest Paper and the background is by Sweet Stamps. 
We visited China, and it is very apparent how the colors are so important- and have significant meaning there- Gold, Red, Green, Blue, Black and White stand for the elements- so are very represented in the scenery everywhere. 

 Have a great Day!

I have come to associate the Asian theme with you because you always execute it faultlessly, as seen here.
Such a strking card and composition.
