Challenges: See post for more details

Hi everyone, hope you are all well, I had a very eventfull day today, and certainly can do without too many of those.....enough said. I love this vintage image and use it often, it was a freebie from long ago and is just too pretty, love the way she looks....Background papers are from Kaiser craft.
I used a tim holtz swirl and photostrip, fence die, real lace and lotz of glitz to give this card a vintage,
shabby chic feel.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss # 95: As you like
Marks Finest #70: Use lace
