Lots To Do and Sunday Postcard Art

This is my postcard for 2 challenges - Lots To Do, where the theme is autumnal colors, and Sunday Postcard Art, with a theme of hats and crowns. I used this beautiful girl from a french postcard from Trishia at French Kissed and gave her a crown of flowers, leaves, and jewels fit for a woodland princess. My background is a piece of colored metal embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, sanded, then flattened by running it through the Cuttlebug again on top of the embossing folder. I wrapped the edges with some vintage German book text - I love how the paper frayed and split when wrapped - gave it a nice, worn look.
