Girlie Birthday Card for Daring Cardmakers


Over at Daring Cardmakers this week, they are celebrating women, and the dare was to make a feminine card. I have been itching to try this little image of a Japanese geisha from Craftwork Cards. Her kimono has been brushed with gold perfect pearls, and looks a bit patchy in the photo, but in real life it's lovely and shimmery. She also looks in the photo as if she is a bit bare beneath her robe, but I used pastel pink shimmer for that, which again doesn't show up very well. The embossed frame and sentiment circle came from them as well. I swiped the embossing with a versamark pad then brushed more gold dust onto it. The gold flower is by Papermania
It's Mothering Sunday here in the UK (and in Australia too I think) on sunday, and I will be celebrating it with one of my sons and daughter, so I am looking forward to that this weekend. Happy Mothers Day to everyone.
