Fan of the Geisha

Sooooo, here is my second (and probably final) card of this evening:

I am entering this into the following challenges:

This card is another order from Helen's mum and I made it using my last medium-sized Geisha Girl LOTV mini masterpiece.  I like this image so much that I Think I will go buy the actual stamp next time the shop is open on a Saturday.

I chose once again to go with the colour theme on the image, so I used a pink card blank and the backing paper is from a Dovecraft Princess Fairytales paper pack, which I haven't used for a while.

The frame is die-cut from some pink paper in my stash and I die-cut the mini masterpiece into an oval to fit in the middle.

Behind the image and the frame, I wrapped the card in some sheer organza ribbon, topped with some thin white satin ribbon.

I printed the 'Granddaughter' sentiment in pale blue, and cut it into a tag shape.  I also edged it with a pink promarker to make it stand out a bit more and added it under the frame.

My something new is the heart pin in between the two blue roses in the top right hand corner.  The pin was a freebie with last month's Simply Homemade.  I thought this would echo the chopsticks/pins in the Geisha Girl's hair. The roses are from Wild Orchid Flowers and match the flower's in the girl's hair, albeit the opposite colour.  

Finally, I made a fan out of some pink spotty paper, tied it with some ribbon and attached it to the bottom right of the card.  I hope that this echoes the fan in the image and ties everything together.

I hope Helen's mum likes it.  I like the softness and girliness of it.

Happy Crafting!
