Stampotique Challenge: SDC49:: Purple, Pink with Black

It's that time again!  Stampotique's challenge for us is to use only their stamps with a color scheme of purple, pink and black.  I want to begin by saying that purple and pink are not my colors.  I am more of a beige kind of girl so anything other than that is a real stretch for me.  I started by painting some purple acrylic paint on a piece of watercolor paper and then layered some bright pink onto the paper.  Cut it in the shape of a tag measuring 7" x 3 1/2".  To begin with I tore off the bottom of the tag and rubbed some of Ranger's Black Soot ink on the bottom, dipped it in embossing powder and hit it with my heat tool.  I found a piece of plastic that had some pink splashed paint design on it and glued that onto the right side of the tag.  I stamped my new girl "Angel" on the left side and glued some Prima flowers as a bouquet with 3 black rhinestones.  I don't have tons of Stampotique stamps at this point so I had to improvise a little for the phrase.  I used my Dymo Organizer Xpress to print out the phrase "she decided to spread her wings a bit!"  I tied a torn piece of pink cloth into a bow along with a piece of black ribbon.  There are three little bells attached to the top.  Aren't those supposed to ring when an angel gets their wings?  (According to George in "It's a Wonderful Life".)
So here is my submission:
I hope you like it!  See ya tomorrow.
