CBGM challenge Buttons,colour pink & lilac and sketch

Hi everyone this is my very first posting as  a member of Gill's design team.  I'm so excited and hope you like my submissions!
 Unfortunately (not for me!) I am in South of France as we speak and with no access to the internet so apologies for not commenting on your entries but I will make up for it on the next challenge!

The BP I used is from a DCWV wedding stack and the ribbon came off a box of chocolates that are long gone:)) The stamp is one I love and was featured a couple of years ago in Craft Stamper  but I can't remember who it's by. I stamped in black Brilliance and again onto some Anna Griffin paper and then paper pieced the dress. I did the same for the hat using textured pink paper and adding a lilac bow. I think she is definitely a pearl girl hence the necklace and earrings :) I inked a doily with lilac chalk ink and added it on top of the ribbon.  I matted and layered the image onto black and pink card and used foam pads to lift it slightly. The swirl is a Marianne die and the rose I cut from the Anna Griffin paper and decoupaged it and attached it with silicone glue to the corner. The buttons are from my button jar.
Thanks for looking and good luck with the challenge :)
