A Day for Daisies - Bewildered

I love so many of the images in the Beauties collection in the A Day For Daisies Shop.  The hair and eyes are two things that appealed to me about this one, called Bewildered C.  She's been sitting partially colored on my desk for a couple of weeks because I was hesitant to tackle that head of hair!  Luckily, I wandered over to the Splitcoast Stampers site and this week's inspiration challenge helped get me unstuck.  This dress from a Tumblr site called, I Don't Wear Dresses was a perfect muse.  The top portion of the dress with all of the folds and movement made me think of her hair and then the rest fell into place!  IRL, the browns in her hair are toned a little closer to the dress and not so red-brown.  I stayed with the E20 family, along with E49 and 57 for my deeper colors.  I wanted to stay true to the photo, so I didn't add a sentiment on the outside of the card.  All of that is on the inside.

I fussy cut the image and placed her over an oval that was stamped with my trusty French Script background stamp from SU.  The edges are distressed with Soft Suede ink and three enamel dots to finish her off.  The brown embossed panel behind her head was calling to be used in my scrap drawer!
