Firefly Fairy Goes Vintage

It's time for a new challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges.  This fortnight, we want to see your Vintage creations. you have two weeks, as usual, to play along and link up your vintage creation.  You could be one of our DT favorites, or even possibly win a prize from one of these generous sponsors:

Oh, and now, here are the details about my project for this challenge. I must admit, I've never been very good, in my opinion, of achieving the Vintage look.  So, while the image is gorgeous, I admit, I struggled a bit with this creation.  Hopefully. I've managed to achieve the Vintage look as the end result.  I made this pretty card using the image, Firefly Fairy, by Fairy Tangles, colored with markers. All papers used are from my stash.  I used glitter to add sparkle to the fireflies on the image, to the wings and to the band of stars across her forehead. I've used cream colored ribbon across the bottom and added a matching handmade bow.  The upper left corner of the card has been embellished with a metal filigree corner piece.

I am entering this car in the following challenges:
