HOC February Challenge #1

Hi Everyone,

Today is the start of the House of Card February Challenge #1.  
Here is the Inspiration photo and colors for the Challenge:

I really like bright colors and have a tough time with softer colors like these.
My card:
 I wanted to add a vintage look to the frame (after I accidentally made a gold smudge on it) so I just kind of scribbled on it with a gold leaf pen.  It looks best from farther away.  I also wanted a little texture behind the frame; I added a piece of SU white waffle paper.  I'm not sure if they even sell it anymore.
I stamped the flowers in grey and then colored them in with ink and a water pen.  
I really like the soft effect it gives.
 Besides the roses, the first thing to catch my eye was the little ruffle at the bottom of the skirt. 
I wanted to include that somehow on my card. 
I pleated white paper after I had spritzed it with some pink and gold Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.
The sentiment is a new Hero Arts.
And, of course, a little bling.
Be sure and check out the Challenge over at House of Cards.
