Vintage florals

This card if for TTC12-11 on Crafts by Carolyn forum which has been set by Adele, who is asking to see 'vintage florals'. I've used a ready decorated  background on to which I've added some Prima flowers and flower centre, as well as a couple of docrafts ones. The oval picture of the girl has been in my box for ages. I edged the rim with stazon vibrant violet and then lightly distressed with shaded lilac DI using an inkylicious blending brush. The three little dragon flies were punched ones - I have a whole bag of them in different colours that were punched out ages ago (they come in handy occasionally).

This is also for:
