vintage style girls birthday card

woweee... I have been so so so hectic, I haven't had a chance to make something on the spur of the moment for ages... I have been very busy with customer orders for cards, and design team work... I snuck this one in when I had a spare couple of hours to play with!

The image I have used for this card  is from SillyShells on Etsy and it is called 'Ballerina Dress'.

the other ingredients of this card are:
promarkers in antique, cocktail and pale pink
Coffee in the arbour paper from maja designs  at Live and Love Crafts,
Claudine Hellmuth Gesso, liquid pearls in opal also from L&L C

dovecraft doily,
bo bunny sentiment and tag
Flowers handmade using MFT flower trio die,
glossy accents
gold stamens
paper from craft creations

i think the leaf flourish is from cheery lynne designs , but until I find the packet again I'm not certain!

also used were tim holtz distress ink in spun sugar and tea stain, and some synthetic lace.
