Vintage for Nan.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.Hugs for all who need one today.
It is an early start at work today and i have an extra shift this week too BUT i have next week off ;D
So here is my card for today which i have made for my laddo to give my Mum for her Birthday in a few weeks.It is a big Birthday but i have not put the age on as i am sure she will not want to be reminded.lol.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.In The Pink Challenge - Challenge 50 - Anything goes
2.We Do Dubadoo Challenge - Challenge 12 - Shabby Chic
3.As You Like It Challenge - Fav 2 embellies and why (first one has to be flowers, so many choices out there to choose from in all the colours of the rainbow plus you can make your own with dies too and if they are used around an image they draw your eye in to the centre, my 2nd choice is trims, whether it be lace, pleated fabric, ribbon, i just love the texture which is lovely and tactile.)
4.MAWTT Challenge - Feeling a little vintage
5.Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge - R189 - Something old (the metal butterflies are old and i have used an old vintage image)
6.613 Avenue Create Challenge - Challenge 85 - Anything goes
7.Glitter N Sparkle Challenge - Challenge 98 - Use some metal
8.Sentimental Sunday`s Challenge - Challenge 220 - Monochromatic colours (pink)

A close up of the image, i have used a baby pink promarker over her dress to make it pink.
