Aliah - Hannah Lynn for Crafts and Me

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers, I really appreciate your support, and thank you all for the lovely comments you have been leaving.

Today's card is something new for me a fairly monochrome card. I bought this Hannah Lynn image at Crafts and Me a few weeks ago as I think she is gorgeous.

The backing papers are from Lucy Cromwell and I also embossed some Bazzill basic (not that a lot of it eventually shows). I added a Cottage Cutz doily, Whimsy corner, Cheery Lynn butterfly and leaves. Ribbon and buckle from Mei Flower. Flowers from WOC and pears and gems from my stash. 

She is coloured as always with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I added purple glitter, Glamour Dust and Stickles. I also used a little distress ink around the edges.

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
