Love to Dance!

My daughter loves clogging.
The only problem is you can't find any clogging stamp.
Or any clogger themed scrapbook thing at all.
But All Dressed Up Stamps has come really close with their new stamp.
I had to have it as soon as I saw it.
I decided I wanted to make something very special for my daughter with it.
And since I have really been into tags here lately,
I decided a tag for her Valentine's gift would be perfect.
Cloggers and ballerinas have one thing in common -
they both do toe steps.
And this one isn't dressed in the traditional tutu.
(So this could be a clogger!)
I used a chipboard music note as a template for my black glittered music note. 
I added some pretty lace, red glittery ribbon, red satin rose, white
fabric roses, a brad, and of course lots of crystals.
The "Clogging" metal charm was a push pin that came from a clogging competition we attended.  They gave all dancers a small corkboard with these push pins.  I just took off the "pin" part of it, and glued it down.
And of course I topped it all off with some fabulous fibers,
glitter ribbon, and netting.
I would like to enter this into the following competitions:
