Moxie Fab Focal Point, Movement and Repetition Challenges

Can you tell I'm really getting into these awesome Moxie Fab challenges?!

So here's an example of where three design principles come together neatly (I think?!)...focal point, movement and repetition.
Where do you first look? The central geisha? The concave floral background draws your attention inward to focus on the three geisha's. The two blue fans radiate from the central geisha, further drawing your eye inward (blue to match her kimono).  I've also poofed her hair slightly to distinguish her from her chums, which also adds to the sense of movement - your eye moves around the card in a circular motion, drawn down to absorb the three blue rhinestones then across the bottom fan to absorb the sky blue of the rose, before heading back up over the top fan to settle once again on the central geisha.  The notches taken from the corners are designed to soften the hard angles, which helps to lead your eye around that central panel.
