Mormor 1924

My wonderful mormor (grandma) that I love so dearly, just turned 93 and I made a special card for her. 
I found this cute picture of her in a long lost box and wanted to use it to build my card around. In the picture she's holding a little sweet dog named Max, and funny enough that's also the name of one of her two great grandchildren, my nephew Maxwell.

I used the gorgous paper from Pion Design; Minnenas atelje, and also cut out the butterflies and text from one of their papers. The swirl is from Prima, the ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, feather leaf and pin from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pen embellishment is Tim Holtz and the twine from private stash. The crochet flowers are from Panduro, I can't remember where I got the watch face, just that I got it on eBay.
This was my first attempt on an easel card, and I love the fold. There'll be more of these coming!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
