Geisha Anya Card.. August OCS

Hello Ladies.
I have been out of the loop this past weekend, I took a nasty fall on Saturday and I hurt my knee really bad. I won't get into the details because I don't want to bring you all down. :0)
So today I want to share with you all my Asian themed card that I made for Teri. Teri and I where partnered up for a one card swap group we are both part of. Actually Teri is the creator of this swap. So for the month of August our theme was an Asian inspired card. Well, let me tell you all I was so excited. I have been wanting to play with my Geisha Anya for sometime now, but haven't found a reason to. So when this theme came around I was over the roof that I would finally be able to color her in. I also had found this incredible Palace stamp in a clearance bin when I went shopping one afternoon and I just loved it. I have been to Japan and ladies I just love it there. Ok, so here are the pics, I hope you like.

What did you think? I just love the way this card came out. I colored the Palace and Geisha Anya with Copics, and the fan frame I colored with LuminArte on vellum. I also decorated the inside of the card but I forgot to take pictures before I sent it out. I really hope that Teri and you all like it. I worked really hard on the coloring. And the concept was truly inspired by my travels to Japan. All the colors are traditional Japanese colors that you would see in Japan. Thanks for stoping by and please, please let me know what you think.
