There Was an Old Woman

I have been itching to use this stamp for as long as I've had it, which is about 2 years, but the opportunity has never presented itself.  I coloured the image with a combination of promarkers and flexmarkers, I cut the image out with Xcut Nesting die, I then went around the edge with a distress ink.  I then used some lace to truly frame the image.  I coloured a luggage tag with a distress ink and used Letraset rub-on text to get the wording.  I used a green poladot backing paper for the base and used the cut of strips to make the ribbons in the tag.  I then added a button and a bow to finish the card off.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:
