Vintage Style Card

I decided to have another go at a vintage style card.  I love other peoples' vintage card but I've never really been happy with my own - not sure why.
The backing papers I have used are the Bearly Mine Designs Shabby Vintage and they are perfect for this style of card.  They are all gorgeous and it was hard to choose which papers to use.  The image of the little girl is a freebie from Magic Moonlight Free Images.  Isn't she just gorgeous?  I printed her out onto printable canvas paper.  I have done some basic matting and layering and then used an Embossalicious 6x6 embossing folder called "Regal Frame".  Under the embossed piece of card I have frayed some cheesecloth for some texture.  I have used a selection of dies that I won in some candy and used Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink through the dies to add some colour.  The friendship words are Kaisercraft stamps which I also won.  I have finished the card off with grosgrain ribbon, pearls, blossom flowers and a gorgeous pearl pin.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
