I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 71 - Anything Goes!

Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge at I ♥ Promarkers and this week it's Anything Goes!
Our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop with the winner getting a $10 gift certificate to spend in the fab online store.
The Design Team got to choose some images, so I decided to go vintage for a change and used one of the ladies from 1900 & 1920 Vintage. She is of course coloured with Promarkers.

I've created my own backing papers by stamping over HOTP plain papers with sewing machines, buttons and safety pin images from a Personal Impressions stamp set called Vintage Sewing stamps. I used Distress Inks to give a faint impression. I ripped and distressed all the papers and went round all edges with a Promarker. The tag is cut from HOTP papers, the postcard border is also from HOTP. Other items used are lace, a Martha Stewart punch, a cream feather, button and twine, and some gems and beads coloured with Promarkers. The cardstock is Papermania Kraft 6 x 6". The flower I made by scrunching up some old Prima petals and adding Gesso. I've also added Gesso round the edges and randomly on the card.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
