CC2C week 25 collage

It's week 25 at the Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 Challenge (this week sponsored by Simon Says Stamp) and we are challenged to create a Perfect Pearls palette as described on page 53 of Tim's book.  It was lots of fun to create this palette of shimmery colors to paint with and you can see them used in my background.  I then created this simple vintage collage using a fun 7Gypsies frame giving a faux cabinet card look.

Hi Penny- The close up photo shows just how pretty the background is and just makes the girl pop. Love you idea of putting her in that 7Gypsies book cover. Hope your having a fun creative fall.-Erika

Gorgeous way to frame the image and the background I can see is a shimmery delight.
Did you know that Downton Abbey is viewing over here, unfortunately there are only two more episodes. It is as wonderful as ever.
I hope life is being kind to you Penny.
