Vintage Tilda

Vintage? Did they say Vintage? OMG, I don't do Vintage! It's just not ME. However, it's for such a good cause - SCS Hope You Can Cling To challenge for Breast Cancer - that I had to take a deep breath and dive in. I found some Prima pearl flourishes with tiny pink flowers attached, dressed my Tilda in subdued, hopefully Vintage colors, distressed the paper with Tim Holtz antique linen, and added some delicate ecru lace I had left over from a crochet project I had done several years ago. (Anyone ever heard of the Princess Dolls?) Some Mulberry flowers and a few more pearls seemed to finish it off. I don't know if this is truly Vintage or not, so any advice or criticism is more than welcome.
