CDAC'S PROGRESSIVE FREEBIE CHALLENGE #16

One of the freebies offered in Round #16 of CRAFTER'S DIGITAL ART CENTER'S Progressive Freebie Challenges is a gorgeous Camellia in a frame, by the talented artist Arielle of Wax Fruit Company.

Here is my card with the image :


I printed the image onto a page from an old novel that I bought at a second hand book sale, and coloured with alcohol markers and white gel pen highlights.  The torn edges are inked and chalked and a pretty brown organza bow was added as the sole embellie.  The kraft card is actually an old manilla folder that I was going to throw out, but rescued from my paper recycle bin.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :
