A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Use a Doily and a Pin

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is "Use a Doily and a Pin".  I've actually used two doilies, I cut them in half, then cut the middles away and pleated them to make a frill for my topper.  For the pin element, I made my own, from head pins and beads.

I've used one of Janet's stunning vintage images for my card, this one's called Leyla, and you'll find her in the Pink Gem shop here.  I've coloured her with my usual Promarkers, she was such fun to colour, I do so enjoy colouring these vintage girls.
The papers, filigree card blank, sentiment and decoupage rose are all from Papermania's Vintage Notes range, all I've added in are a couple of pearls and some organza ribbon.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sugar Creek Hollow - #69 - Rose Garden
Totally Gorjuss - #100 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - #58 - Animals
Simon Says Stamp - Animal Antics
