A bit of Ooh la la!!

Today I got out my Paris plate from The Stampsmith.  I chose the dancing girl as she is such a star, and stamped her using Versafine Vintage Sepia onto cream card, then matted and layered onto brown card.  I cut another piece of cream card using Nestabilities Labels One, drew faux stitching around the edge in brown and then ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Birds and Swirls folder.  The background paper is from the Laura Ashley Traditional pad.  I added some flowers from my stash; the small one has a PaperMania pearl brad and behind the bottom corner flower I added some loops of ribbon and some flourishes that I cut with a QuicKutz die (Flourishes).
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The Stampsmith Challenge - Starring Role

Divas by Design - One for the Girls
Paper Pretties - Flowers
Claudia and Company - Birthday card for a girl
