Shine On, Shine On Harvest Moon...

     My card this morning is made with an image from The East Wind called "Borum-dal" meaning Full Moon.  Every time I look at it, that song "Shine On, Shine on harvest moon up in the sky..." starts running through my head.  :-D


     I colored the image with a combination of ProMarkers and polychromos pencils plus a dash of gel pen.  I framed her with a die cut frame (Cheery Lynn - Dainty Dutch Deco) which I used today for the first time.  Oh, that die set is going to get lots of use -- I love it !   It gives such a pretty vintage touch to everything.

     I worked on a red CS base which I ran through my "Linen" embossing folder, then added the wide lace and the image on top of that.  I made a double bow with lace for one layer and satin for the other.  This is another of those cards which looks very complex because of the vintage framing and the lace but which was relatively simple to put together.
