Paper Pleating with Digi's With Attitude!

Challenge #23: Theme Challenge - Asian

Sometimes, I look at a card I've made and it really makes me happy!
This is one of those cards!
I LOVE this one!
I think it's one of my best in awhile! (-:

I used the brand new Tween With Attitude! "Geisha Tween"
I colored her hair with Prismacolor Pencils and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Our DT had some discussion about coloring black hair and
when I saw the challenge at Make it Crafty this week is coloring black hair,
I watched the tutorial on Zoe's site and it was so easy
to get that "shiny" look!
Thank you for putting that tut together!

I also used white over her entire face to give her a "real' Geisha look!
The symbol in the corner is Japanese for "Spring".
I meant to add the English translation in a tag on the front,
but, alas, I forgot... and I didn't want to take away from the "look" of this card.

I used avscalloped SVG border file for the paper pleating and
the "Cherry Blossoms" are from

I don't remember where the papers came from, but they  just looked so Oriental, it seemed perfect, to me!

The ladies at Gingersnap Creations are asking to see Geisha Creations for their challenge this month.
I definitely want to enter this lovely lady for a chance to win!
