Hi all today I have a card that I would like to enter the following challenges:
For my card I have used some papers that I have had in my stash for a long time they are 12x12 but cannot remember the name.  I have used one of my H&S stamps that I have had for well over a year and thought it was about time I inked her up. 
The first thing I did was to distress the edges of the base card with TH Vintage Photo ink, the papers have all be mounted onto gold mirri card.  The frame I made using my SU scallop punch then distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink.  I stamped the image several times so I could paper piece the dress and bows in her hair, I used the same papers as the rest of the card.  I coloured her with Copics then used silicone glue to 3d the image and frame.  I used a Marianne die cut and gold mirri card for the flourish, the flowers I made using Nestie Scallop small die cut, added some lace and gold liquid pearls.  I used a calender stamp from Whimsy stamps and put some gold metallic vintage mesh behind.
I hope that you like my card and enjoyed your visit.
Hugs to all.
