I die cut the woman to fit this shape which reminds me a cameo.  A simple scored and sponged background with some ribbon adhered to my card base makes a quick card with a bit of elegance.  I have a couple of other ideas for this set.  I just have to work up a bit of courage, as they are a bit irreverent!

Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to Janine's blog.

Like the cameo look of your card with the embiossed background. Fond of photography I like vintage photos.

"Cameo" was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw your card. Obviously, that was the look you were going for -- you succeeded! I like the background folder you used.
