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)

Sentiment: unknown 

Corner punch: Martha Stewart

Border punch: Martha Stewart

Also: Vellum, distress inks, satin ribbon, pearls
