Dare to dream...

Hi everyone! I have a new tag in my continuing Victorian Women Series featuring the works of Harrison Fisher, a popular artist that symbolized beautiful women in the Victorian era.  This is one of my favorite images from him, and I paired it with pretty filigree Spellbinders dies and complimented it with lace and silk ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
