I just wanted the image to really pop out..
I did use the doily as usually..


And this time I added another doily.. The die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.. It was too small to put it under all the layers so I moved it a bit to the right..
The tag is a Magnolia Doohickey..
I love vintage seam binding and now that I now how to make it I just can't stop..


The Photo corner die is from QuicKutz..
The pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and so are all the flowers on the card..


All the edges are distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and machine sewn..
The postmark stamps are from Magnolia and Kort & Godt..
The dots around the image are made with Liquid Pearls..
I've also added some Stickles to her dress..
