Hi! This is for today`s Inspiration Challenge brought to us by Stephanie. We were to be inspired by a vintage clothing store called ModCloth. Read about it here. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...D-t504147.html
What fabulous items this shop has! I finally decided on this dress. http://www.modcloth.com/store/ModClo...y+Meadow+Dress
I used a Penny Black image and watercolored it. Added some vintage lace, pearls, and tiny gems to the centers of the flowers. And yes,,,these are the gems Peggy gave me and she has priced them at 50,000. :-) I hope you like it and thanks for looking! Your comments make my day! Please be sure to check out our VSN Summertime In The Land I Love challenges beginning at 12:00 EST and continuing until 11:00 PM EST. Fun!!

Ohh Judi!! You create the most stunning cards and this one is no exception!! I love your Penny Black images and your out of this world watercolouring! Gorgeous ribbon - and I'd hide those pricey gems from the rest of us SCS'ers - I'd just pretend that they were faux pearls for your own safety! :)

Your watercoloring is absolutely amazing ... I would frame this, especially to protect those pricey gems :) ... the yellow from the inspiration dress really frames it beautifully ... gorgeous inspired design.

WOW! Judi, this is gorgeous!!! I have to echo what everyone else is saying -- beautiful coloring, excellent layout, gorgeous ribbon!!! Your card is much more spectacular than the dress from which you drew your inspiration.
