Pretty Vintage/Shabby Cutie

Hi there, it's another dull day here so unable to sit in the garden, never mind i will just have to keep on crafting, lol!! 
I always like to try different things and i love attempting to create vintage cards, i'm pretty pleased with this effort!

My card today has a vintage/shabby theme using a beautiful image from Janet k designs.
DP's are Basic Grey's 6x6 'Serenade' and Kaisercraft's butterflies paper 6x6 'Bonjour'.
I've used my Marianne D's 'Lacy rectangle' die, Spellbinders fancy square label die, Magnolia's 'Doily flowers dies, Poppystamps die 'Lorelai leaf'. Melissa Francis lace, ricrac ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, other ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
Thanks for looking!!
Here's my attempt at vintage
                                                                 Close up of pretty image
 Close up of handmade flower, for the centre i have rolled ricrac ribbon, my first attempt at this.
