Lots of paint and ink here. The large background piece is paint on gelliplate then stamped to take paint off before printing; the image is stamped onto ink sponged onto glossy card. I like the delicate lacy effect of the large background and the light play with the image.
Owning up: I mistakenly glued the background to the wrong side of the base card - originally the lacy border was to be at the bottom. The good thing about this is that you end up with creative design solutions, not mistakes.
Image stamp: unknown (a really old one)
Corner punch: Martha Stewart
Border punch: Martha Stewart
Also: Vellum, distress inks, satin ribbon, pearls

Had to laugh Carol, we all make mistakes and nine times out of ten no one would ever know if we didn't say something.

How very beautiful Carol, love the colour mix and the fabulous image, I think your mistake, wasn't! The border at the top suits this perfectly.
