She Loved an Adventure

This lovely circular image is from the April ephemera releases at Gecko Galz.  For my design team project, I decided to enlarge it to make a card.



Distressed the edges with scissors and weather wood and broken china distress inks.  The white doily was "kissed" with spun sugar distress ink.  All inks by Ranger.  Martha Stewart key. Flying Unicorn roses.

Entering these challenges:

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C 133 Adding Black Cardstock to make your card pop---I used a pre-made round black cardstock base.


Art With No Boundaries: Challenge #6 Anything Goes  -- this young lady is going places


Cheerful Stamp Pad: Challenge #40 From the Past--this lovely Gecko Galz image is definitely from the past by the style of her hair and dress.
