Pagoda Card and Two-Page LO

While browsing around I came across an updated post from Agnes at flowerdiscosscraphut regarding her Sweet Pagoda Challenge. I immediately thought, "I have been wanting a personalized stamp", which happens to be the prize, and "I have never used my oh-I-had-to-have-it-or-I'll-die-Pagoda cart", and "the pictures of my daughter my DH just took of her where she looks like a Beautiful Geisha will go so well...", so I set up to create a two page lo, but after reading further down the posting I found out that the winner will give her/his card/project to Eileen (the lady making and donating the personalized stamp).  So I thought, I'll just go buy my own stamp... Eileen is not feeling good right now (I contacted her for details......).  Anyway, after going  back and forth in my mind, I finally came up with the "I'll make a card and a two page lo and still enter!  Hello!!

This is the card

This is the LO
DH was so excited to have received 10 comments!!!! on his golf layout that he wanted to be involved, so I had him color the dragon which comes with only one small layer (orange swirly)... I think he did a great job coloring the tongue and shadows, etc.

The Kanji word on the LO is Daughter
and on the card is Health

Paper is DCWV and Core'dinations for solid
Everything was inked with antique linen distress ink
every cut is from Pagoda cartridge except the pond (water)
You probably cannot tell, but on the Kimono I added bling wih the Imaginisce i-rock (I am not very happy with the result - the glue came out and cannot be removed)
