Daring Cardmakers-Pins and Needles!!!

Evening all
Just posting my card for the DCM dare.
This week Jane has set the challenge to use pins on our cards and I have chosen a teeny little safety pin to hold the tag on this card I have stamped using a clear stamp set just released by Dovecraft in the Laura Ashley Collection.
I started off with a humungous puzzle piece from a kiddies jigsaw which I have sanded down and coloured with various inks....the green isn't quite so vivid IRL that was just how it scanned.
I then stamped with the first text stamp I put my hand on which is from the Aspects Of Design Nautical set.
The butterfly image from the LA set was then stamped in Brilliance-Pearlescent Poppy. I wrapped the ribbon round and then pinned the tiny stamped tag on....... and boy was that fiddly to do or what?
The centre of the card was masked off at four inches and a border coloured with inks and stamped.
I'm off to look at everybody else's dare cards now.
Ta ta for now.
