Stampsmith Lovely Lady

Hi Everyone,
Today, I have a Lovely Lady image from The Stampsmith.  This image is from my new set: Flappers #3.  I thought that this image looked like a high school graduation picture.  So, I used some papers that were reminiscent of school.  The image is stamped with black dye ink on glossy white CS.

The card base is made from Not Quite Navy CS from Stampin' Up.   The DP is from TPC Studio and I included the one that looks like graph paper...the school feel.  The sentiment is from the Stampsmith set Those Were The Days.

I added a touch of color to the flower with Broken China Distress ink.  For accents, I used a  piece of lace with adhesive on the back from Hero Arts, a wide sheer gold ribbon , and beige pearls from Kaiser Craft.  I left the inside fairly plain so I could write a nice note.  The inside:

Well now, how about a few challenges for my Lovely Lady.

Simon Says Stamp and Show: Bling.  I added pearls and my Lovely lady is all decked out in bling.  
Art Impressions: Anything goes
365 Cards: Vintage plus blue
Crafts and Me: Blue
Paper Take Weekly: bingo-I used Pearls, Ribbon, and Free Spot

That's it for me today.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Love ya.
