Scrap the Girls - September challenge

It's a first time for me..
First time participating in the 
Scrap The Girls
challenge for September

They have a great sketch 

..which I rotated 90' to the right so I can have the bulk along the bottom
I have stretched the title up also
Initially I thought of doilies or big flowers but went with elements and floral clusters.

Remember Your Dreams

I had the black background in my pile of 'backgrounds waiting patiently' pile from when I was mucking around with 2 step Resin and had a little left over so, swirled it over a piece of cardstock... as you do? I thought I might be able to snap and crack it but it dried quite flexible!

The printed vellum is from an OLD packet of Close to My Heart papers (Not sure of the name of the collection, but I WON it in a challenge - hooray!!)
I then adhered the lace paper across - just like the sketch - traced a paper plate (I was at a Retreat and didn't bring my circle cutter, of  course?) misted the OLD Pink Paislee resist card - added a lovely piece of pleated ribbon/lace from The Vintage Chicks Club.
The 'Remember' part of the title and a couple of the flowers are old Heidi Swapp resit ephemera, which I spritzed with Kaisercraft mist in Candy. 
'Your' is Thickers and the 'Dreams' is part of a Dusty Attic set, simply inked black.
Add some Manor House Creations flowers, a couple of Imaginarium Designs Chipboard 'leaves' and Basic Grey (yes, super old!) coloured metal which I sniped in half and adhered under the photo.
My favourite embellishment is Shaneen's cut and pieced 'Elegant lady' - those electronic machines are not my thing, I'm old school so anytime I see that someone else has made it work, I'm happy to pay them!! lol She came in various colours and has a sweet porcelain flower on her hat!!

Photo is sweet baby Phoenix.
