'Vintage' with Julia Spiri New Challenge

Hi there Crafty Friends, Bloggers and Followers, well it's time again for a new monthly challenge over at Julia Spiri. Our theme as always is anything goes, but we always have a twist which you could do and this month it's 'Vintage'. For my DT project I am using the adorable image Chic Girl.  Please follow the links at the bottom of the page, for more wonderful images and challenge details etc!! And so here is what I created:-
My Project
Products Used
Julia Spiri - 'Chic Girl' image
ProMarkers - Sunkissed Pink, Pale Pink, Pastel Pink, Cocktail Pink, Tan and Putty 
Copic Ciao - Cotton Pearl and Pinkish White
Glitter Gel Pen - Gold
Connoisseur Studio - Treasure Brass Wax gilt
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card, Delicate Floral Embossing folder, Centura Pearl Pink card and   'Downton Abbey' Oppulent Corner dies
Britannia - Rose Leaf die
Creative Expressions - Petite Vinery Leaf die
Spellbinders - Grand Decorative Oval die
Dovecraft - 'Pretty in Pink' Backing paper
Little Birdie - Floral Cafe flower
From My Stash - Kraft card, Brown paper, Crochet flowers and Pearls

Using a 7x5 kraft card as my base, I layered this 'Pretty in Pink' (as the name says) paper, adding the kraft card die cut corners, that I gilded with brass wax. I die cut more kraft card using oval decorative die, then embossed with the delicate floral folder, that's quite a good match with the backing paper I used and layered on top. I then printed, coloured and carefully cut out image and placed as shown. Finishing off with die cut leaves, crochet flowers, flower and pearls.
