Miss......

"Strong and Miss" were the two words in the Craft Barn Q&L Challenge.  Nothing came to mind for "Strong" but my brain immediately started singing "Have You met Miss Jones?" and it wouldn't stop.  I love the songs Richard Rodgers wrote with Lorenz Hart better than the later ones with Oscar Hammerstein, take a look at this list, I bet you start singing one of them. Some time I was given a beautiful cabinet card by a friend, she looks like Miss Jones to me.  As it was Valentine's week and there were hearts everywhere they had to be part of the design but I didn't want red ones. So I used red card as the background and dug out all my heart stamps, stamped them with grey achival ink and die cut some Memory Box butterflies. So here she is.

and here is a version by the old smoothie Frank Sinatra.

A lovely depiction of your lyrics. It feels like a genuine step back in time in to Miss Jones' life.

I'd never heard that song before, but I sure love your choice of images (cabinet card) and your lovely hearts and butterflies. Stunning and unexpected colors.
