Elegant Art Deco

Good Afternoon All, I hope you are all keeping well, I had a pink over dose and lost my mojo for a few days, I saved my self by packing away everything pink and locking it away for some time to come lol.
This stamp was a freebie on the creativity magazine a few months back, I coloured her with promarkers and fleximarkers, Spellbinders labels 10 die cuts, backing paper from papermaina capsule, Memory box die cut swirls Marianne creatable  Die cut swirls Joy craft die cut butterflies, gems organza ribbon and flowers are from stash.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
