Tickled Pink Stamps GDT Call!!

Hey there, how has your day been so far? I was up bright and early at 8:30am despite not going to bed until after 1:30am, it will catch up with me later, I'm sure!! Anywho.. I've had a great time getting ahead with some DT makes as well as organising the uni notes I've made over the past few weeks for my dissertation. They were all over the place - which totally isn't me, and it was bugging me no end, so something had to be done about it! LOL. I managed to get my creation - a tag - for the TPS GDT Call finished up last night, not sure I'm 100% sure about it, but I thought hey.. you've gotta be in it to win it!!

Here is the sketch canditates had to follow:

And here is my take on it:

I printed Lil' Lolita Ivy super huge, almost 6" so I could go all out and have real fun colouring her in grayscale. I used Basic Grey Pyrus patterned paper along with Bazzill Kraft cardstock.

Here is a close up of the black and gray beauty. I love how shiny her little top hat looks!

These gorgeously yummy flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I teamed them up with some Prima flowers and chocolate buttons threaded with linen twine.

These tags are from PTI Tiny Tags stamp set with coordinating die. I used a Studio G stamp alpha stamp set to create the sentiment using SU! Pumpkin Pie ink.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
