Art Deco Birthday Card

I can't remember where I found this image. I don't think she is a flapper. But the dress and head piece are the "Art Deco" look. Maybe 1920's or 30's. I thought she would look great on a card.
I played around with different back grounds. She didn't look quite right until I found this Basic Gray paper..."Marrakesh". The aqua and black work so well together. I covered her dress with black Stickels...some rhinestones on her shoes and center of her belt (is that a belt?)
She does look pretty good on a card. Now the question is... is that a shadow under her arms or...?

OK Patty this made me laugh! I would like to believe it is a shadow but then again maybe she is visiting from Europe:)

The card is just stunning! I love the muted blues FABULOUS Fit for a Flapper!
