Pals Paper Arts challenge Lady in Red {PPA76}

Well this is my second posting today. Both getting submitted just in the nick of time too! Whew...
 The PPA76 challenge was VERY challenging too. Here is the inspiration photo.
See what I mean?
Well here is what I came up with:

This card is done Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and shades of Grey and Black. I tore some pieces from the "Newsprint" DSP, and distressed all the edges and glued to the front.
I then layered a piece of ribbon trim and that I had sewn with some black tread in a criss-cross pattern.
 I stamped my sentiment in the Elisabeth stamp in cherry cobbler and then distressed the edges. Two pearls adorn the sides and it was popped up a few dimensionals. 
 My beginning inspiration came from this post on Ann Schach's blog a while back using "Elisabeth" which is one of my favorite stamps, but I forgot about it until I saw Ann's post, which made me want to do something special with it again. 
I punch out two hearts and ran them through the BS using the CB polka dots embossing folder then tucked them in behind the popped up sentiment.

 I did the same cobbler distressing to the small flowers that were in my stash.
The inside is finished with a touch of the DSP.

Well that's enough for one day!
