Marie Antoinette and a sketch challenge

The current Stampsmith challenge is a sketch. I decided to flip the sketch on its side. I used Marie Antoinette as my focal image. I stamped her on glossy paper. If she looks a little checkered, it is the result of scanning the glossy paper. In real life she looks like a photograph. Behind her is a vellum doily cut using a Cherry Lynn die. The background panel is paper which has glitter embossed flowers. The fleur de lis is a pearl embellishment from Prima.

Wow, this is gorgeous and SO elegant! Love all the different elements. We are so alike; I have the French pastry, English teatime, and Italian flourish doilies from Cheery Lynn! The Prima fleur de lis is the PERFECT finishing touch for this tragic young queen!

A wonderful entry for the sketch challenge.
Clever use of the doily to represent the circle.
I have to say that this is the first time I've seen this stamp used in the challenges, refreshing to see it.
Good Luck with the Prize Draw and thanks for joining TSC
Wishes
