Coffee Brigitta Antique Style Banner/Card - not NYC related

So I recently purchased my first character stamps and have been having loads of fun creating different cards, altered items, and banners.  I strive to try the unexpected or the untried so I have used this super cute little girl stamp and made a grunge/vintage style (which is the style the recipient likes) banner/card.  This is a birthday entry for CC Design's Monthly Challenge, and I am really excited about the way it turned out.

 The front includes craft flowers with auburn bling, some black and white baker's twine, some tea-dyed cheese cloth, a stained asterisk wood piece, and of course the really cute Coffee Brigitta. I colored her with Derwent water soluble color pencils and paper pieced her sleeves and pants (I like how the chevron pants echo the baker's twine).

The back is also covered with coordinating vintage-style clock paper and there is a little tag that has the sentiments tied up with a little frayed strip of fabric.  All the edges of every paper piece is stained with Tim Holtz antique photo stain or using black felt tip pen.

Let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by!
