Distressed LOTV beauty

Hello everyone, hope you are well! I have been really struggling with my health recently but I wanted to show you a card I made with the gorgeous new Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' papers-I love them so much I found it hard to cut them! I used a LOTV image stamped in Memento and coloured with promarkers and sakura pen for the mirror, Coredinations gemstones cardstock, Kraft cardstock, Bo Bunny papers, and flocked paper from my stash, Prima flowers, Lace, Pearls, distress inks and a bow.
I followed the lovely sketch from Donalda at the LOTV challenge for this card and started by mounting kraft cardstock onto a white card blank. I then placed the papers following the sketch, and mounted the image on Coredinations gemstones cardstock. I then inked and distressed the edges of all the paper and card with distress ink on a sponge and on the image with a paintbrush dabbed in ink. I then added my embellishments and made a special centre for the bow in the corner by using a circle of pearls with an aqua gem stuck in the middle.
I hope you like it!
