Allsorts 406 - Girls and Ladies

Another week has gone by so fast, Saturday already again and that means it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts. It's Mervi's week to host and she wants us to use Girls and/or Ladies on our creation. I love this image by Mo Manning, it reminds me of simpler but special times from the past.
And I thought it would be perfect for today's card.

The image has been colored using copic markers on Neenah Solar Crest card stock. Designer papers are from Stampin Up (retired) and I finally dug out my sewing machine again for this card. 
I embellished with sheer ribbon and jute twine, a couple prima flowers and a tiny butterfly. Wink of Stella was brushed over the flowers and butterfly. 

Close up below...

And a peek inside...

I hope you'll come join us at Allsorts this week for this fun challenge and for a chance to win a fabulous prize!
