Vintage LOTV

Another gorgeous LOTV card today, i made this while hubby was watching the football so i didnt feel guilty that i wasnt sat keeping him company. There is so much distressing on this card that it gives it a vintage feel and the colours ive used adds to the vintage theme.

 Ive coloured the image in with promarkers and cut it out with a nestie then distressed the edges with walnut stain. the papers ive used are MME again all the edges are distressed with walnut stain. Ive framed the image with lots of wild orchid crafts flowers and the ribbons were from a seller on facebook. Ive added time holtz tags and a butterfly cut from the cricut , a string of pearls finishes the butterfly. ive also added a string od clear beads around the image to complete the frame. Everything is finished off with edges smothered in gold stickles.
Im going to have a mooch around the net and see what challenges this will fit.
im entering this into Passion for promarkers - Cut it out, ive used a die cut butterfly
