Ummm, Yummy Mochi

Here's my 4th set of cards which I'll be combining with others to make 6 sets of assorted cards for gifts.

Gee, I'm craving some mochi now that I see Hideo by Sister Stamps enjoying some.  Ummm, I like mine with a mixture of Kinako (toasted soybean flour) and sugar.   In case you're wondering, the Kagami Mochi on the table is a special traditional Japanese decoration for the New Year. It is usually displayed inside the house to bring good luck and prosperity in the new year.  Kagami mochi is made of two rice cakes (mochi) with the smaller one placed over the larger one, and a type of orange placed on top.

And here are 6 of them.....

Other fun products used:
Aston side Table" die by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking
Spellbinder dies
"Kagami Mochi" stamp by Dandelion Design (Happy New Year Set)
DP from stash
Laser cut sentiment by and from Island Scrapbooking

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

You made another fab card to add to your stash of cards that you will be giving away as a gift set. Which one is your very favorite that you have made? If I had to choose it would be way too hard.

This card for the set is adorable. Love the blue and yellow/orange color scheme and the mochi stack. It's fun that you've been showing us one card at a time. Looking forward to the next card.
