Vintage print

Here is Silke Ledlow's card for this week's challenge at CASE Study:

The word "vintage" was mentioned in the description, and that's where my mind went.  I searched my saved images for something vintage, and found this print by Jessie Wilcox Smith, one of my very favorite children's book illustrators.  So that was the basis for my card.  I pulled all of the colors from this image, and used Silke's sketch to put everything together..  


supplies: cream card base, design papers from My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel paper pad and October Afternoon Fly a Kite pad, computer image by Jessie Wilcox Smith, PTI Embellishments for sentiment (love the font), versafine onyx black ink, periwinkle ribbon, lace from Carole, old button, flower brads, pale aqua pearls

Here is a closeup of the sweet little girl, showing her beautiful face and more of the details.  I pulled the ribbon color from the flowers in her basket.
