Moxie Fab Challenge: The Taintor-tude Challenge!

Here is my entry for the Moxie Fab Challenge: The Taintor-tude Challenge!
I have only entered three card challenges in my entire span of papercrafting - but, when I saw this challenge I just HAD to participate! Anne Taitor is the designer behind those cheeky little products you see in the stationary stores with the vintage ladies saying smart-alecky little comments. They are just too fun! And, after all, my husband calls me his saucy little monkey - so is it any wonder I like this sort of thing?
I began this project by surfing the web for vintage photos. This image really caught my eye. The red cape is just gorgeous - and she really has attitude, don't ya think? Then I went searching for a designer paper that would match just so. I thought this sentiment "fit" her personality. Although, I did almost put, "I'd rather be wearing my snuggie." But, I was worried that might not go over as well. I completed the project by putting a "ruby" on her finger.
This is my first Anne Taitor inspired card, but now that I've made one...I want to make many more. I have ideas for three more. So - time willing, I will share them with all of you if I get them on paper.
If you would like to participate in this challenge, you can find it here.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Ivory Linen by Neenah Paper and Designer Paper by EK Success (Brocade Red)
Spellbinder Die Cut: Deckled Rectangles
Image: Vintage Postcard from the world wide web http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/
Sentiment: Just printed from a font using my good ol' printer
Other: Rhinestone by Kaiser (stuck on her ring finger), Lace Trim purchased on ebay, and dimensionals
