Completely out of my Safe zone!!!

well I'm not too sure about this one, and you will have to excuse the photo, but its not quite dry, so I cant stand it up to photo it quite yet...........
so Opinions please?
My First tag!!!

I'm not at all sure about this, I dont know wether I have gone completely OVER THE TOP, just enough or completely missed the point of Tags?
The image is a new one from Scrapbook Stamp Society, one of 3 that I will post as soon as they are done.
This is Dana Ready to Dance ragamuffin. A lovely teenager on her way to the Prom, I think, as she has a corsage on her hand.
So the image itself was coloured with Promarkers, Fuschia, Carnation, Blossom, and Rose pink, with Walnut, Henna and terracotta for the hair. The skin is Almond and dusky Pink.
I used some Pink Tissue paper from my stash and layered it onto the tag, then turned the tag over and added the edge of a large doily, and liberally DTP transfered some Pigment Cotton Candy, and then some Dusky Concord Distress ink, and shoveled some clear embossing powder over the top, and I mean SHOVELED!
Next I added 2 pink feathers from my stash, and 3 large pink gems. And then I went mad with flowers down the lefthand side!! I coloured some of the white ones with my Fuschia Pink promarker and an airbrush, to co-ordinate them, and added a gemmed spray.
I took a long length of Fuschia Organza ribbon, made a layered bow, and then heated it with my heatgun, to crinkle it.
Some added detail with some Cosmic Shimmer silver pearlised glue, and crystal Accents, and a touch of vibrant fuschia glitter.
So Have I gone completely OTT? Or just enough? Or have I completely missed the mark?

your opinions?

WOW, WOW, WOW Lou this is just amazing. I LOVE IT!!!

You haven't gone over the top at all, like cards they can be simple or blinged to the hilt.

Loving the ribbon, I must give that a try it looks awesome!
