Gracious lady

This card is for challenge 29 on this week's Unscripted sketches:



I've used the colours given for challenge 41 on the Color Dare:


The card is also for:

Saturday Spotlight challenge 5: 'in so many words'
Our Creative Corner: 'vintage style'
Created by hand: times gone by
One stop craft challenge 53: 'newspaper/text/script/writing
SPCC finally Friday: the challenge is to use a favourite stamp - this one is one of my all-time favourites, although I haven't had it for long, I tried to buy it for ages and couldn't get it. There was a further option to use a favourite colour combo - tbh this isn't one I use very often, but I think it should be on my list of favourites, because I love it!

Edited to add:
Lots to do 45: 'distressed' (today's new challenge just gone up!)

The stamped image is Hero Arts 'gracious lady' coloured with copics. The turquoise core'dination card was run through the cuttlebug script embossing folder and then sanded and torn.
