Photo transfer collage- her name is Elise

Hello again!:)
I finished this morning my first quilt made with  transfer photo on white cotton.

I liked this little cute girl very much and I wanted to see if I can place it into an art quilt.
I called her Elise :)
Respecting the rules of the mixed media course I tried to fit everything into a collage using vintage fabrics and accessories as well.
Buna din nou !:)
 Am terminat in dimineata aceasta primul meu qquilt realizat cu fototransfer pe panza alba.
Mi-a placut tare mult copila asta dragalasa si am vrut sa vad daca o pot incadra intr-un art quilt.
Respectand regulile de la cursul de mixed media am incercat sa incadrez totul intr-un colaj folosind materiale vintage si accesorii la fel.

I already had the fabrics  bought about a few months ago and it has got to match:) The combination of the slightly dusty colors  emphasizes the vintage character.

I had the opportunity to use doilies and lace that I have made last year and I was wondering what  should  I do with them:)
In addition I learned to do those famous yo yos which are super simple and super fast to do , without any special device.
The pink roses, pearl buttons and  colored pink buttons, the bow from Karina left:) complete the picture and give it that score feature.
Aveam materialele cumpare de cateva luni  si s-a nimerit sa mearga :) Combinatia de culori usor prafuita accentueaza caracterul vintage al tabloului.
Am avut ocazia sa folosesc mileurile si dantela pe care le facusem anul trecut si ma intrebam ce o sa fac cu ele :)
Pe langa acestea am invatat sa fac acele vestite yo yo care sunt super simplu si super repede de facut manual, fara nici un dispozitiv special.
Trandafirasii roz, nasturii de sidef cat si ei colorati ,fundita roz de la Karina ramasa :) intregesc tabloul si ii dau acea nota caracteristica .

Overall I like it; but the transfer is lighter but neither the original picture is  clear.

What do you think? Does it looks  vintage or should  I give up?:):)
Per ansamblu imi place; transferul e insa mai slab dar nici poza originala nu e foarte clara..
Ce ziceti? A iesit ceva vintage sau trebuie sa renunt?:))
