"Tag Art"

Hi, I've been very quiet lately - lots of things going on at the moment but, by the skin of my teeth, I've made my entry for The Stampsmith's current challenge, "Tag Art", using at least one Stampsmith stamp.  My tag is home made and I've mounted it onto a card, which I need for a colleague's birthday tomorrow:

The image is stamped on glossy card in Jet Black Stazon, with just a touch of burgundy red chalk on her cheeks - I think she looks like lady who knows exactly what she wants, lol.  For the tag I used white card coloured with Antique Linen, then over-stamped with a letter script stamp, and a little Black Soot DI around the edges.  I mounted onto black card and added some champagne coloured trim with glass beads, and some black cord and black metal ribbon tied at the top.

The dp on the card is from the Vintage Treasures paper pad by Melissa Frances, and I've stamped some flourishes around the corners, and finished with some Black Soot DI around the edges.  Some black ribbon and a sentiment (from an IndigoBlu stamp plate ) to finish.

I'd also like to enter this into the following challenges:-

Truly Madly Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers - Something New (rubber stamp was a Xmas gift)
Creative Stamp Friends - Old Fashioned or Antique
I hope you like it.
