Enjoy Your Journey -Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge #57 -On Holiday -DT Card!!

Happy Friday all! 
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far?! We got us a new pool for the backyard and we had a chance to enjoy it last was very nice but I forgot to use sunscreen and got a mad sunburn. So I've been miserable all week. Hoping to heal up enough to get back in this weekend!

Anyways, I finally have a card to share with you all today for "Fairy Fun Friday" challenge! And our theme this time is "On Holiday!" I thought 'Geisha Gilly' would be perfect for this challenge as she clearly looks like she is enjoying her travels!

Gilly looks gorgeous in her geisha attire and I think I have managed nicely to follow the theme throughout the entire card! I have recently fallen in love with the 'Picturesque' cart for the Cricut as it has lots of lovely cuts including the border and corner cuts I've used on this card...they're called 'Far-East'!

Some close-ups...

I continued the theme inside on both panels with a side pocket on top...
