Midsummer's Night Dream

This is another postcard for the Art 'n' Soul group containing at least 2 of the following:
* A vintage image (stamped or printed)- I stamped a vintage image from Scrolls work that I won in dark blue ink. Beautiful stamp.
* Paper collage - collaged flower from sheet music, watercoloured oval scolloped punches, glued together with hot glue. Pretty thread used as stem trailing down.
* Some lace or ribbon or fabric - added paper lace made out of matching sheet music paper
* A button or other embellishment - metal butterfly added to flower
* Embossing or texture - mounted on cuttlebug embossed cardstock edged with silver heat embossed powder.
I made a picture frame for the stamped lady using some stickers. Hope whoever gets it doesn't mind. They are very special. The borders are designed from original 15th century art from The Vatican Library - The Bibliotecca Apostolica Vaticana. I picked these up at a yard sale and the blurb on the back says "A significant portion of the proceed from this sale goes directly to preserve and restore the priceless Vatican Library, ensuring these treasures for future generations."
