MFW's TT 'A Fine Toothed Comb' & Metal Wood & Cork Challenge

The Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is this delicate comb:
Delicate, vintage, feminine, metallic, porcelain, 
a decoration for a lady's hair.

My new Waltzingmouse order was laying before me calling to be used and there on top was 
their new 'Putting on the Ritz' stamp set. Delicate, feminine, well, you know, perfect for this trigger.

I created my bg paper using 2 of the stamps in the set and PTI's Simply Chartreuse and Fine Linen.
The pattern was perfect, until I got to the bottom! 
I Cut off the 1/2", rather than cut the stamped pattern,  and added a bit of glitter paper that just happened to match.
The 20's images feature this art deco lady, I cut with PTI's 1 1/2" circle die, then stamped with Melon Berry and decorated with plume and sequins. The top sequin is in the shape of a flower,
pink Stickles added to center.
She was added to a 2nd die cut circle stamped with another image from the set in PTI's Dark Chocolate. Then added a ring of latte pearls.
Another larger size was added to the diamond stamped shapes on top and bottom.
Soft gold ribbon, 2 metal leaves, copper tie finish.
Oh yes, and a sprinkling of 'fairy dust'!
A Fine Toothed Comb runs through this week if you'd like to play along!
