Japanese themed Mothers Day Card for My Sister-In-Law

I have been wanting to use the Pagoda cartridge for a long time, but I didn't know what the Kanji symbols meant until I put my reading glasses on and was able to read the very small print at the bottom of Kanji word section.  So I decided to make the card using the word as the card base and the tag for the center  Later in the week I am going to use the same card base in bright colors with flowers or animals.

It is hard to see the mono chromatic effect of the center crane.  It is a very glittery crane on white cardstock.
Cut English word "MOTHER" at 8" using black textured Colorbok cardstock (page 60 of Cricut Pagoda Cartridge)Cut crane tag 3 times at 2"(pg40)
Back word with sticky tape(Sookwang) Add glitter(Crystal Glitter Ritz) Do same to tags using Martha Stewart Red glitter for two outer images and clear for center
Add Ribbon(Michaels) using ATG tape
Adhere cranes to card
