Polka Doodles Challenge - Recipe

Good morning everyone, all being well, I should be on my way to Farnborough when this post pops up. It's Friday yet again and we have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles. Your hostess this week is Enfys and she would like to see creations with 2 Ribbons and a Charm.
Enfys challenged the Design Team to use one of our favourite stamps with the recipe and this will be a regular monthly feature from now on. It will be no surprise to learn that I decided to go vintage!
I chose this very pretty collage style stamp by Crafty Individuals, stamped her with Memento black ink and coloured her with Promarkers in a variety of shades.
I've used a pink and a beige paper with a vintage feel from the latest Paper Boutique Volume 3 CD together with a lilac ribbon striped paper from the Sundae of Seasons CD. I used a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch on the beige paper for the central border and a Woodware daisy corner punch on the lilac paper.
I made the charm from shrink plastic cut out with a Nestbilities die, inked with Pearlescent Olive Brilliance ink and stamped in black with the flourish from the Daisy Doodles stamp set. I then glued on a brass stamping.
I finished my card with a brass ornate corner from my stash, some mauve velvet ribbon and some pretty checked ribbon which I twisted and then attached the charm with a jump ring.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 6 March to enter and good luck!
