A thank you card

Yesterday late afternoon (on my time zone) Paulette from TlcCreations set a 24 hours challenge, and she offered a beautiful image we needed only to color to participate.
I printed it out right away and I thought leaving it to color the following morning, but it was so beautiful that I couldn´t help myself and I finished it yesterday night. Today I made a card with it
this is my first time making a vintage looking card, or as vintage as I could get up to know! and I love the result! really...
These are the image before and after
I colored it with colored pencils, cut in a round shape and layered it with a piece of the base cardstock, distressed the edges and added dots of glitter glue.
I used a digi paper leftover (I used it before here, and I still can´t remember who made it...) that I distressed with ink, a ruffled lace I had for at least 4 years (!!??!!) and a ribbon I bought this morning specially for this card because I didn´t have any to match.
The sentiment on the front is from Sueli Colbert Designs and I printed it out directly on the card
and I added two dots of glitter glue paint.
I made the inside too!
because Paulette has also a wonderful sentiment that goes perfect with this image.
I´m participating with this card at Digital Tuesdays Challenge blog where we have a technique challenge: distressing, at Cupcake Craft Challenges blog where we have to use two digis from two different designers, and at Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog where the challenge is to switch it up: new technique or new style.
