Books Make the Best Friends

Many times when I make a card I select the DP first and paint a image to go with the colors of the paper. This time I colored the image and then selected the paper.... I believe this paper is a perfect match to my image...not only the colors but love the vintage look of the floral print with the vintage image of the girl reading by the window. She looks to be from the late 1800's or early 1900's by the way she is dressed. I love her sailor dress with the petticoat and her accessories. I imagine she is on a summer holiday at the beach and loves to read...her books are her friends when she is away from home and friends. Over her shoulder you can see the beach.
This vintage image is a freebie digital from Paulette from Create with TLC. Love her great digital images.  I colored with Copics and sponged the wall background. I cut the image and green mats with nesties and assembled card using a sketch from Midnight Madness. Added some flowers that I cut out on the reverse side of  DP with pop ups. I think the sentiment is a nice finish for the card.
