CSCC Presents Memoirs of a Geisha

This week's movie pick at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge is Memoirs of a Geisha. I've missed couple of their challenges already and when I saw this week's pick, I just had to play.

No stamping done on this card at all just a lot of cutting. I've been saving this patterned paper for awhile now and thought that this is perfect pattern for a Kimono dress (template can be found here).Card size is 5" x 10 1/2" folder in half.

This is what it looks like in the back of the card. Plain and simple just the way I would wear a Kimono...if I can fit into one...LOL!
