French Beauty, Vintage Style Card

Hi to all in blogland, hope you are well.  My card for today features the beautiful image French Beauty which I got from Scarlettess.




I have been wanting to make a vintage style card for a while and have used this quite week to make a card featuring this fabulous image.



Material used for this card:

Kraft paper base card.  Design Papers from Crafty Individuals. Mounting paper from my stash with edges distressed with gold to give a vintage feel.
Lovely image as detailed above.
Wonderful vintage style ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.  Beaded hat pin.
Fabulous pearl and lace decoration which is sumptuous.
Gardenia Flower from The Ribbon Reel.
Gorgeous Duflex Butterflies.
