Asian Lion Dance Birthday Card

Received this birthday card from a creative friend a while back and am finally posting it now.
This card is way too beautiful not to share.  It is made by Eunice: her blog (A star for Chiemi) can be found here. Look for more details about this card on her blog. Finished card size is 5" x 7-1/4" x 1-3/8".  Shimmery Ivory  and Gold card stock mainly used along with red card stock in many places. The photos in this post do not reflect how gorgeous this card is in person.
Overhead view of card:
Top half of the first layer of this card hangs red (my favorite color) lanterns.  You can also see the third panel (layer) where The Asian Pillar is attached with characters translating to: Happy Birthday.
I think this little Asian girl is so cute with her Red and Gold trimmed Asian dress. Love her red shoes, too.  She is cut out and popped with foam tape. Her cheeks have a hint of blush - so cute!
This cute Lion is attached on to the second panel (layer) of the card.  And, he is really cute!!!
Love this tag with the glitter mat and Asian computer font greeting:
When card is flattened to mail, it looks like this:
Back of card is a computerized message and beautifully created:
