Keeping It Simple..... sort of!

Time for a nice challenge on the OSAAT blog and this week it is 'Keep It Simple'

I was a little bit stuck for time this week and chose to use this gorgeous pre-coloured image from Ike called Japanese Lady and you can find her here.

I just had to bite the bullet and use a piece of my hoarded Graphic 45 paper pad called Bird Song. I've mounted her on a couple of pieces from the DCWV Natural mat stack that were perfect for the image.
I've cut a flower from a Memory Box die in the reverse side of the paper which was just as beautiful. A couple of Marianne Dies leaves and a little coin button to finish. when I purchased the paper pack I received lots of sticker and embellishments, so I've kept it fairly simple!
