Sassy Sayonara

    I just love this sassy little geisha from Bombshell Stamps.  She is one of their digi stamps.  Now, you all know that digis are not necessarily one of my favorite things.  I'm an old fashioned rubber stamp kind of girl, but, this digi is just irresistible.
      This card was created from my stash.  Even the image was previously colored.  I tend to have tons of Asian themed things in my stash. I have always been fascinated by Japan and my oldest daughter even has a geisha themed entertainment business. She also collects kimono and had has had pieces of her collection featured in art gallaries.  (OK, can you tell that I'm a proud, biased mama?)

     For this card I used a sketch from CCEE Stampers Blog.  I always enjoy entering challenges and for the next two months, I am going to be going gangbusters for challenges.  The Bombshell Design Team has a internal challenge to see who can enter the most challenges and I happen to be just a little bit (a lot) competitive.
