Kimono Marci with Fan Birthday Card

So here is another Asian card using La-la Land Crafts stamp set called Kimono Marci with Fan found here. The La-la Land bridge die is cut in black card stock and can be found here.  This is called a telescoping card: tutorial can be found on Splitcoast Stampers here. I made my card using the following measurements:
Circle sizes: 4-1/2", 3-1/2", 2-1/2"
inner circles: 4", 3", 2"
Washi circle: 3-3/4"
Paper used is Recollections Black, Recollections Pink, Washi paper from Paper Intelligence #0046-558
Happy Birthday stamp from Sprinkle and Sparkle. Embossed using black powder to stand out. The Sakura flowers are stamped, Copic colored, then popped with foam squares along with Mark Richard adhesive pearls.
Copic colors:
Hair: W1, W4, W6, W7, W8, W10
Face: R20, E000, E00, E01, E11
Dress and fan: R00, R01, R11, R20, Washi paper piecing
Mark Richards Gold Adhesive Pearls
Int he stamp set is a separate fan - Washi paper pieced and popped with a foam square.
Here's the card all "closed" up............Marci is peeking out of the first circle and the Sakura flowers are surrounding the card.
Thank you for stopping by today and hope this will inspire you to make some fun cards today.

I like how the card telescopes so Marci is hiding demurely behind the fan!
