Geisha with Orchids

This card is for 3 challenges:
1. Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge - CC257 - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=479668;
2. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC40 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/; and

The stamp is from Hero Arts (one of my favorites) and the geisha is one of my new Asian folders from Cuttlebug.

Valerie as long as I have been coming to visit you each week...I have got to say that this is one of my favorites that you have done. I love the striking effect that embossed geisha has on the visual impact. This is very impressive and tantalizing. Beautifully done!!! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week.

Bear Hugs,
