Sei Shonagon meets the Butterfly

Did you ever hear about Sei Shonagon? She was one of the first women that wrote literature in Japan, who lived between 966 and 1017 . Her beautifully written diary "The pillow book" is well known all over the world, and there is also a Peter Greeneway's homonym film based in her writings.

Well, here is my pick of Sei Shonagon - it's my original drawing based on antique japanese style- while watching a butterfly. Who knows? Perhaps at that moment she found some inspiration for her writings!

Here is the complete card. I used polka dot paper for Lucy's Challenge no. 5.

This is officially my first card this year.
