Gibson Girl - Charles Dana Gibson's Illustration

I love the drawings of Charles Dana Gibson he was an early 1900 graphic artist who was noted for the creation of the "Gibson Girl"
The base card was stamped with a flower flourish and heat embossed gold powder, the next layer is a pretty brown and gold paper which I used a fiskers threading water border punch I then tied the cream ribbon around this and tied a bow.
I cut cream and brown ovals and sprayed the brown with a gold spritz (Glimmer Mist) and finally added the image on top of this.
