Part of the 'couture' line, this fashionista is modeling hand applied specialty feathers and intricately embroidered lace, ribbon and a gem.   And to complete her look she is framed by some glittery indigo lace print, which coordinates with the envelope liner. 



it's all in the details…





look for the golden 'couture' on the back...
