A Walk in the Park

Well, here we are on the last day of NettieG's Fashion Challenge. For this last card I chose to have Elizabeth in a walking outfit...perfect for a walk in the park. You can find the image here. Nettie has Elizabeth and in her Corset and stockings, her petticoat and 3 dresses...2 day dresses and 1 walking dress...for sale in her store for $5.50. Go check out her store...she has some wonderful images.

Again, I wanted Elizabeth to stand out because she is such a lovely I colored her in red with purple trim. On her hat I added flower soft to make the flowers look more real. And added flower soft to the open gazeebo and flower pots around her.

I added a little red and white rose to the bottom right corner with small purple heart embellishments. In the bottom left and top right hand corners I have added larger purple heart embellishments. I also added the small hearts on the base of the card by the sentiment. The sentiment was by Squigglefly.
Supplies: SU Cherry Cobbler, Purple cs from Michaels
Purple frame by The Sherlocks' Home
Background gazeebo is from an advertisement for a gazeebo
Flowers by Recollections Boutique Fluer Mullberry Paper Mini Roses

Charlene! I am awestruck! Eliza is a scene frozen in time. The color choices are fantastic, but I have to say your use of the embellishments and multi media is what places this in the class of "effects above and beyond." You are truly an inspiration and seeing my images in your hands is truly something to marvel at.
