I've decided to highlight one card that I felt ticked a few boxes for this challenge - it has black on white spots, it has a dog, it even has (like the cover) some pink: 
Well done  Shirley Bee .I hope you will copy the badge (above) to your blog.

Thank you so much for all the beautiful entries into the Memoirs of a Geisha challenge. 

Here are a few entries that I feel showed different ways of interpreting the challenge:

Becca  took inspiration from the cover - that glittery red heart is  really reminiscent of the lips. 

Front of card

ginadapooh used a beautiful geisha image in a simple and elegant setting. 


Viv  made a very pretty oriental-inspired card, with loads of interesting details. 

 I hope you will copy the badge (above) to your blogs.

The current challenge - 101 Dalmations - is still open for another week and also I'll be back tomorrow wth challenge 6- a book Oliver Twist might enjoy.
