Guest Designer for Party Time Tuesdays

About a month ago we were invited to do a guest spot for Party Time Tuesday Challenge Blogspot by Danie, and several of both teams decided to give it a go, the Challenge is "Vintage/Shabby Chic" theme and I decided to take part with my fellow Team Leader Marie.
And here is my card.

I decided to use this gorgeous "Spring Breeze" image for my card and you will find that here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, for the mount I used the Leaf Square and used pink card for this.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and for my papers I have used "Victorian Beauty" and you will find them here.  The first paper is a very pretty pink patterned background which I have distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool and then on top I have used a green one and I have torn the edges on both sides to create a strip which was then placed down the middle. I then used some vintage lace across the center and vintage ribbon along the top both these were stuck to the back of the first mount,
I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have tied a bow with some of the vintage ribbon and stuck to the left of the image and tucked a couple of hat pins behind it, and the last little flourish is the pink pearls down the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you go and visit Party Time Tuesday Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the team have created for you, and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Vintage/Shabby Chic" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
