Geisha

This month at Gingersnap Creations we're taking a trip to the Orient. Asian themed cards and projects have never been my forte, but as I have said, "I do love a challenge" and I have enjoyed being a Gingersnapper.
I believe this is the first Asian themed card I have ever made, so be kind, but with the help of Google images and some asian paper from Lisa Vollrath at Ten Two Studios, a pretty asian charm and tassle I found on clearance, a few stamped cherry blossoms I think I've got a worthy entry.
Supplies: Caramel Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Asian paper-Ten Two Studios, ColorBok-Soft Speckle, Stampin Up-Basic Black, Georgia Pacific White Card Stock, Stamp: TPC Studio-Cherry Blossoms, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Brilliance-Galaxy Gold, Fiskars decorative corner punch, Bo Bunny Brad, Charm and tassle unknown, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
