Inspired by the Inspirational

For some time I have admired the 'collage/eclectic look' but haven't known where to start or how to achieve the desired look. Thanks to the DCM challenge I have looked to Gillian and her fantastic work, and made a card taking inspiration from her distinct style. I made a list of things that I noticed she used and try to incorporate as many as I could on the card. Things like Vintage images, stitching, swirly stamps, text, keys, arrows, ribbon, diamantes, fleur de leis, crowns! etc... I am so pleased with the result and hope that I will now be on the road to success!
