Ingenuous

How could I leave a beautiful bit of background paper like this on my desk and think I wasn't going to use it? I thought I was tired of this paper, but I'm not. It just wanted some buttons and a sweet young thing circa 1910:



Of course, this is for SketchFest Friday. The buttons and embroidery floss were scavenged from my sewing chest. This is my first time using marker shading on a card, but it seems to really make the images pop. Don't ask me why I felt the need to shade the buttons, too - you would think they were sufficiently dimensional without my help.
