Sweet Victorian Lizabeth

Today I'm sharing a card using  Victorian Lizabeth from Lacy Sunshine.

Lately, I've been trying to make cards with less embellishments to make them easier to mail, but this incredibly sweet image just made me go back to my shabby chic roots.  The background is made with the 3 largest dies from the Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 set.  The swirls, sentiment and larger flowers are stamps and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations; the smaller flowers are punched and colored with distress inks.  I added pearl centers and then finished with some Stickles.  I also added some Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel around the image, which has been colored with Prismacolor Pencils.
