I got this fabulous 12x12 paper pack from Michaels, Recollection Midnight Magic. Oh my goodness I am so in love with this pack. And huge plus, it was priced 19.99 but rang up 11.99. SCORE! I cut out the lady with the umbrella from one sheet and the roses from another and decopauged them to this canvas. The pack has so much Halloween goodness, but totally can see using this on a lot more than Halloween projects. I also got this fabulous skull stamp from Michaels, one buck oh yeah.  The sentiment is of course from Tim Holtz. I love the way sometimes you see all these posters that are identical plastered to a brick wall, I think its such a cool effect, and this is why I stamped all the repeating sentiments. 
I used a combo of ribbon and pearl trim wrapped around each other for the way to hang this. 

There was silver foil swirls on part of the bottom of her dress, I didnt feel it went with my piece so I added rows of black lace and purple pearl trim up her skirt.
