An 8" x 8" card

This is one of just a few large cards I've been making recently.  I took the photo in the early morning light after some welcome rain.  It's a card for my sis-in-law who was a wedding dress designer so I know she will appreciate the image.  I've left it uncloured as I didn't want anything to 'fight' with the background paper.  Sadly the photo doesn't do any justice to the beautiful black moire silk ribbon.  If anyone recognises where the image comes from, please give me a nudge so that I can give some thanks.

Background paper and sentiment from Craftwork Cards - Glitz and Glamour
Matted layers from DCWV Natural matstack
Image from Mel Stampz  check her blog it's fantastic for freebie digital images
I'd like to enter this card in the One Stitch At A Time Challenge # 23

This is gorgeous Jenny - so elegant.

...And as for St Leonards. I've never been there *g* but OH has told me some hair raising stories (he's a Hastings local.) We picked Hastings this year to spend some time with his parents but I just love the arty stuff that's always going on there.
