A Victorian Lady Courtesy of Bertie!

A couple of weeks ago I received a package in the mail from a sweet lady named Bertie and she included a "packet" of some scrapping items as a gift. What a sweetheart!! Inside this package was this beautiful card of a victorian lady. I thought and thought of what I could do with it and came up with this. I had an old black picture frame about 25 years old and have been trying to figure out what to do with it. So I painted it white and shabbied it up a bit and made an insert for it with those lovely roses fabric. Then I just started adding things, but I wanted to keep it simple. I added netting to her skirt and then buttons, glitter rick rack, bows, lace and rhinestones. She is very regal looking so I added a "jewel" to her hair. I love the way it turned out and am so grateful to Bertie for all her kindness and creativity and for...........well.........just for being the "beautiful" lady she is and adding her voice to our PRH group. Thank you, sweet lady.
