Cuttlebug Kimiko Geisha's

I made the Geisha's on this card with my new Cuttlebug 5 x 7 Emboss Folders and some wonderful foil cardstock, I love how you can see the reflection in the picture.  The Giesha'a are from the Kimiko folder.  I embossed and debossed so that I have 2 images facing different directions.  This was quite easy, I folded the foiled card stock in 1/2 so the shiny side was facing front and back.  After I embossed them in the blue foil I cut them out.  Then I ran double scraps of white card stock through for the heads and hands, which I also colored, cut out, then glued on.  The lovely dragon is from the Cricut Pagoda cartridge I received for Christmas and haven't used yet!  I cut this at 2 1/2 in the gold and red foils.  I also used the Cuttlebug A2 Japanese Scales to give the dragon more texture, and the Cuttlebug 5 x 7 Oriental Weave on the Wausau Copper card stock.   This card is for the Practical Scrappers Die Cut Challenge.   Which works out well, because they encourage us to use what we have, and I bought these earrings at least 1 year ago!  I used both my Cricut and Cuttlebug folders to make this.
 I thought it would be fun to share a picture of my embellishments, the silver fans I used.  These were inexpensive earrings that I cut up and glued on to the card.  I found my earings and foil card stock  at my local Dollar Treasure.  By the way, I absolutely love the new 5 x 7 folders from Cuttlebug!  Thanks for looking, ~Diane
