Vintage girl

I won some images from Sweet Pea stamps, and I fell in love with this image from Conie Fong.  The girl seemed perfect for a vintage style card. 
The girl is colored with pencils, with Distress ink around the edges of the circle.  The doily under that isn't distressed; it's really old. I found it when cleaning out my parents' condo.  They had loads of stuff from who knows when, including a couple old paper doilies that had turned yellow with age.
The layout is the current Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  For the background panel, I stamped script in Antique Linen ink.
The little "bow" is a snip of crocheted lace tied with ribbon.
