Vintage Style Tilda

Hi all, I have finally caught up on my commenting and wow, what I have been seeing is awesome, your quality of craftiness is incredible.  There is so much beauty, creativeness and inspiration around that I feel as if my little bit of creativity is sorely lacking.  
However, I have made a which I am quite pleased with, I have gone for earthy tones of nature.
The base card is Papermania 8x8 Kraft card, I have used a mixture of papers the wood effect one is from SU, the smaller one is Basic Grey Capella.  I have used one of my beloved Tilda images coloured with Copics I stamped her with TH Vintage Photo distress ink onto linen card I mounted her onto dark brown card stock and distressed around the corners with my Earth coloured Big and Juicy ink pad.
I used TH clock die cut which I also distressed with ink, I added some wide lace, brown satin ribbon and bow, Pearls, hat pins, 2 charms, flowers, punched butterfly and a sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I wanted to thank you all so much for your wonderful comments, I will see you later, hugs to all.
