Pride & Prejudice - 200

Jane Austen's book Pride & Prejudice was  written 200 years ago and the City Crafter blog is celebrating by hosting a challenge  to create a "project inspired by Jane Austen. It doesn't have to be related to one of her novels, it can be anything you feel like it fits in the Jane Austen theme. I'm thinking Regency fashion, bonnets, laces, you name it".

I have read a few Jane Austen books in my day and Emma is one of my favorites, I just love the interesting characters in this comical tale.  I recently printed the main image on my card from the Graphic Fairies blog and when I saw the challenge I knew this was the image I wanted to use.

 
I dusted everthing with antique linen distress ink and put some pink color on the flowers, bonnet and cheeks of this pretty vintage lady using watercolor pencils.  I also used Graphics 45 Ladies diary and Secrety garden papers & stickers.  Finished the card off with some ribbon, twine and a little butterfly trinket.
 
Now, sit down with a nice cup of tea and a good book.  If you're lucky, the cat will join you to keep you toasty.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

Gorgeous work Lucille! The photo and paper you used are so beautiful and romantic. Emma is one of my favourites too. I love the latest BBC adaption of it.
