Sunday Fashion from Years Ago

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called VINTAGE FASHION. We are to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards featuring the fashions of times gone by.  Besides being vintage or shabby chic, the entry must show some sort of vintage fashion - clothing, hats, shoes, etc. in order to meet the challenge theme.
I chose to use a image by Create with TLC showing a lady of years ago in her Sunday dress.  I used colors from CR84FN color challenge.  I colored the lady in Copics and cut it out with Nesties oval that I edged with green and sponged with gray ink. I placed this on an embossed CS of Lavender.  I added ribbons of green and lavender. Added a veil of tulle to her hat that I colored with green ink. The sentiment is a stamp from Anna Griffin.
