Gibson Girls Postcard

Well,when I saw this postcard challenge I thought I should try and enter it, especially as I have a few gorgeous Gibson Girls Stamps that really don't get used enough.
Panic has just set in as I just checked the challenge and it runs weekly,why I thought it was fortnightly is beyond me, head in the clouds as usual.

The background is from the 6"x6" Romance Novel paper pad by Prima, which I glued on to my postcard ( 4"x 6" ) I then used other pages to cut out the flowers and the telegram and the letter piece,they were both stamped using the script stamp from the Gibson Girls set.
The girl I stamped on thin white card, I coloured her using a damp brush and distress ink pads, then cut her out and positioned her over the telegram.
I am really pleased with the way it looks, I do so love these stamps.

The colour palette certainly adds to the romance of it all - wonderful composition.
