Geisha Girl

Sooo, I have yet another card to share with you tonight (and more to come - I need to catch up!):

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Flutterby Wednesdays - open challenge
Lili's Little Fairies - charms/two backing papers
Craft Creations - something new

I used this card as a thank you card for the staff at The Old Barn in Esholt, which is where my wedding was held (photos will follow when I have them from our photographer).

I made this card using my new Geisha Girl mini masterpiece from Lili of the Valley.  I inked the edges with victorian velvet distress ink, which I also used to stamp 'Thank You Very Much'  using a stamp from Lili of the Valley's postmark sentiments set.

I chose to go with a colour scheme to match the geisha girl's dress, so chose some turquoise backing paper from an paper pack I got with the second ever issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft I bought.

From some pink paper from the same paper pack, I also cut out a fan shape.  I did this by drawing round a pin holder, which I got with a recent issue of Simply Homemade, which was a perfect shape and now my new fan template.  I also inked the edges of this.

I decided to tie in the butterflies from the papers by adding a butterfly I made from three different papers, one of which was from the same paper pack, some wire and some crystals from my stash.  I'm not sure if this counts as a charm or not for the Lili's Little Fairies theme, but I have used two backing papers, so that satisfies the conditions for this week's challenge.

To finish the card, I added a blue ribbon to the corner of the fan.

Happy Crafting!
