"Geisha Emma" for my Cuz

A quick post today.  Here's a card I made for my sweet cuz.  I inked up Geisha Emma by C.C. Designs with Copics and made her "Japanese" with black hair.   LOL.   I can't resist flowers.  For this card, I put a cherry blossom by Wild Orchid on 2 layers of white mulberry flowers by e.  Adding to the Asian theme, I used my embossing folder by Cuttlebug on the red background.
Other supplies:  "Arigato" stamp by Mari and Me, Spellbinder die, "Spring Border" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking, Distress Ink, washi paper by Kyowa (a RAK from my special friend), large leaf die by Spellbinder, small leaf punch by Punch Bunch, edge punch by Martha Stewart, butterfly punch by Marvy, and pearls by Kaiser Craft.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes"
Sassy Cheryl's - Challenge 122 - "Anything Goes"
Tuesday Alchemy - Challenge 21 - "Anything Goes"
Allsorts Challenge - Week 161 - "In Bloom"

Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a fun 4th of July.

This card is so cute with such cheery and bright colors. You did a great job in coordinating all the colors with the papers, embellishments.... and with your Copics. I think you did a great job in coloring with your Copics. I'm going to need to take some lessons from you. :) Seeing you make a card for this stamped image is getting me thinking of inking my set up too. I am sure that your cousin will love the card. She is so lucky to have such a talented and creative cousin like you.
