Flower Lady

This pretty lady is so feminine and serene.  I'm sure her name must be Abigail.  I love the way ladies wore those gorgeous hats dripping with flowers in the 1800's & early 1900's, mind you, they had big boofy hair to put them on.  And doesn't she make a lovely spring picture?  I can imagine her going out to pick a bouquet to take to her friend.

The image is coloured with Reno pens, flowers are punched.  The lovely lacy edge is punched.
