Sketch challenge at AOSA

We have a monthly Sketch challenge at AOSA (About Oriental Stamp Art) that I participate in, and I had fun creating this card for the April Sketch.

 This fun Geisha is by Essentials by Ellen. This card is so shimmery it was very hard to get a picture of....  The background- Washi is from an Estate sale. I adhered it to a piece of cardstock, and trimmed it out. I matched it with a cardstock from SU- not sure of the name.....  it was an in color recently. I ran a couple of strips thru an embossing folder for the 2 side strips . For the circle embellishment, I cut out 2 stitched circles and layered them, then added the fun images. I added gold sequins for embellishments. The images were colored with Copics.

  This pic is a bit bright, but I had to settle here with the pic with the metallic cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think anything with metallic card stock is hard to photograph but I know this one shines - and it's beautiful too! Love the sweet image and that wonderful background.
