Find Joy Everyday

I wanted to make a card for Make My Monday challenge - Vintage children and spent ages rooting about among my stamps etc , I also have quite a lot of vintage pics of pretty little victorian girls but i wasn't in the mood for such sweetness !  then I found this image on Bumblebutton's site and I just love the life in it, the picture inspired my choice of papers ( all from my huge stash of free papers from magazines ) bit of ribbon and the sentiment from a set of  Hero Art sentiment stamps and a punched daisy to finish off.
