Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Cheeks: Mix of Aged Mahogany, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose.
Hair: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Clothes and Boots: Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo

I used Go Kreate Large Frame Frilly #10 Die for the shape of my card. The papers are Maja Design and the gorgeous embellies are from the Ribbon Girl. Here are the materials from Ribbon Girl I used:

16mm Pink Ruffle Edge Sheer, 15mm Mermaid Ivory Ribbon, Beaded Stamen Pink/White, Hip Rose Buds Pink Two Tone, Rose Bud Large Pale Pink, 16mm White Lace & Pearl Trim, Pink Crystal Hearts, Pink Pleated Satin Ribbon, Cheesecloth.
