Purple Beauty

Good evening, tonight's card is another vintage one. This time I do know where the image came from, it's from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion CD.
Again I haven't really done anything with this image as she is so beautiful, nothing else is really needed.
The image is mounted onto some purple pearlescent cardstock and then straight onto the dark brown card. The only embellishments are a gold cuttlebug corner, a purple border and a little purple flower with a metallic purple brad.
Some of the colours have not scanned too well and in real life they do actually all co-ordinate quite nicely with each other.
Tomorrow's card isn't going to be a vintage image, but it does have that vintage "feel" to it.
I hope you all have a lovely evening and thank you for popping by, please post a comment before leaving as I love to know who's been here.

Beautiful stylish card and as you say that image doesn't need much embellishment.
