Card with a French Flair

This card uses another vintage lady from the same Graphics 45 Paper Pad "A Ladies Diary" as used in my last post. For this card I cut out freehand the vintage lady in pink capturing part of the background design and then distressed the edges and inked them  with a pink Copic marker.  I attached this to a layer of black and ivory pattern paper from the same pad and attached to a black card base. Added some bling to her hat and tip of her parasol..... Parasol is such an old fashion French word, don't you think? Finished with an organdy ribbon for a feminine touch.  I stamped a Flourishes French sentiment "Jet'adore" with a flourish in Tuxedo Black ink.
This card was inspired by a challenge from the former owner of Joan's Gardens who posted this challenge on her personal blog, Joan's Touch:
Use pink and black
Use Bow
Lady
And a product sold at Joan's Gardens
I used Graphic 45 Paper and Memento ink that is sold by Terri at Joan's Gardens.
