paper tole lady card

At Unstampabelles challenge #20 is to use a doiley.I've used 2,the pink one for part of the layered background and the second heart one i painted through with pink paint to create the lacy backing behind the lady. The lady herself is paper tole,there is 2 layers on her white collar and 3 on the bow on her hat.As I'm nearly 60, I'm using "girls" metaphorically.This will be a birthday card for a friend.

Wow - that was quick! Not too bad for someone nearing 60! I love this image and your paper tole and the backgrounds are fabulous - love the technique (*wink*). From one 'girl' to another, thanks for sharing this at Unstampabelles February challenge - using a doily!
