Sunday Postcard Art "White"

Here is my contribution for the SPA challenge where the theme is white this week.
The background was created with one of Websters Pages downloadable papers, which like usual I altered a bit. The main image was a freebee that the wonderful Terri had on her blog a while back. Thank you Terri, I love this image. White signifies purity and innocence to me, and I think this sweet girl portrays that perfectly.
I added some lace and pearls to her dress and did the same behind the slits to add some extra texture and dimension

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
