Forever Rose - Hannah Lynn

Good afternoon everyone. Hope your weekend is going well. I thought I would try something a little different today with a dark card. Not sure if I got it right.
I have used one of Hannah Lynn's beautiful images from Crafts and Me, 'Forever Rose'.

Isn't she gorgeous. She looks so deep in thought.  She is straight cut and then I have added a SB romantic rectangle of one of the new Dlites. I actually remembered to get out my sewing machine for a change (usually I have the card made then remember I was going to stitch it ).
Backing paper is from the 'Once upon a time' stack. Flowers from WOC and Hobby House. Butterfly is a Cheery Lynn and ribbon and pearls from my stash.

She is totally coloured with promarkers and just for a change I will list the colours :)
skin = Oatmeal, Saffron, Vanilla, Pastel Pink and Antique pink
hair = Petrol Blue, Twilight, Polar Blue and Icicle
rose = Antique Pink, Cocktail Pink and Pink Mittens

I added glossy accents to the flower dome, her lips and eye and distressed her mount with a mixture of walnut stain and tattered rose.

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.
