Lantern Geisha

I thought I'd post a picture of the Lantern Geisha card I had on my Work Desk yesterday.  This was for a mingle on the Oriental Stamp Art Group.  I love this group, always something interesting going on. 

Back when I quite stamping for a while,  in 2000, Internet was just becoming affordable and there were very few rubber stamp sources and I don't think "groups" had even started yet, there were "still message boards" and if you were lucky you had a fast dial up connection and you "got mail"  Ah, the old purchase the Internet by hours... and then the cool tool was a crimper.... So I am still amazed at how this whole rubber stamp thing has grown and still retains a very personal identity.  I guess I said all that because I like being challenged and I like meeting new friends on the blogs and in the  groups.  Or I said all that because my brain is functioning more like a fried Cheetos right now - went to bed at 4:30 am and was up at 7. 
Any way here is the card!! hopefully the peek was worth all the above blah, blah blah.
The lantern is actually mounted on dimensional dots, the kimono has a tie which holds the card shut.  What you can't see are all the bronze firefly stamped all over the card!


The card is a A6 size and mailed out in a A7 envelope to make room for the swap goodies!

Thanks for stopping by
