Recycling with Pretty In Plaits

We have a brand new Anything goes Challenge (As long as its an All Dressed Up Image Obvs!) starting over at the All Dressed Up Blog.
This is my card using an image called Pretty In Plaits.

I die cut around the image using a Lawn Fawn Circle die and them mounted this onto the Doily die cut which I think was from Marianne Design cut from Satin Card. Before I glues it in place I added a die cut strip which is actually the waste from a My Favourite things Scalloped Edge die! I attached to this some pearl ribbon too.
The pattern paper has a lovely gloss finish and is from SEI called Bridgeport but I have had it in my stash for ages!
I layered up the greeting from Pebbles and added a co-ordinating Yellow resin flower with some wooden Embellishment branches that had actually broken from the main Bird Embellishement from Hobbycraft. I used Promarkers to colour this in green. So I have actually been quite Frugal with my recycling and using bits up on this card... I knew there was a reason I keep every scrap!!

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Hair - Warm Grey 5,4,&2
Skin - Usual
Flowers - Powder Blue, Buttercup, Lemon, Canary, Gold, Lime Zest, Pear & Moss.
Hat - Peony, Tropical Orchid, Pink Lobster, Wild Cranberry & Maroon
