LOST IN THOUGHT

TRADED
I couldn't decide whether this poor girl was actually lost in thought or bored stiff, or possibly both? The background is a scrap of paper which has been extensively inked, and the image is from Digital Collage Sheets. I also added the rose and a scrap of lace, and the result works perfectly for this weeks TGIF challenge.

Anyway, this is Esmerelda, a refined well brought up young woman, closely guarded by her mama who never allows her out unescorted or to have any fun. Hence the bored stiff pining for adventure expression on her face.

She's been sent a rose by an unknown admirer and Esmerelda has decided she doesn't care what he looks like as long as he's rich and presentable and will take her away from Mama as quickly as possible in order to have some fun before she expires from boredom.

On the other, if the anonymous admirer should happen to be the handsome heir to a dukedom she met last week, that would be enormously pleasing - and Mama might even approve!!
