Geisha in PINK

I think this has got to be one of my favourite cards so far.  I'm a BIG pink fan so I decided to colour this geisha image Wind Blown from Art by Mi Ran in yes pink :)  This is another one of "those" new to me artists I'm discovering in the digi world.

Once coloured I cut her out with a Spellbinders die.  Here's a close up so you can see.  I've also added some biro to highlight her hair.  The flower embroider ribbon I've added is something I got from Hobby Craft ages ago - I can't even remember when I bought it!

Papers are from Joy Crafts - Romance and Wild Rose Studios - Antique Library.  Both lots were bought from The Glitter Pot.  The pink silk ribbon the the left hand side of the card was purchased from Hobby Craft.

The flowers you can see in the close up above are a combination Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts (I don't think I could make my mind up - LOL)

The final embellishments are some pearlised self adhesive gems (Hobby Craft), some silver butterfly beads (supplier on Amazon) and a silver fan (from The Ribbon Girl).

Sorry about the overload of posts recently - I'm having idea overload :)
