Red piece

I've been working on this collage forever. It started out as corrugated cardboard that I sanded, painted, and sanded some more. Then I started applying different recycled materials--a painted dryer sheet, a few labels soaked off of various jars, some trim from a box of Valentine chocolates, and more vintagey-looking scraps. The lady came from a workshop I took from Mike Putman @ JackandCatCurio. I gave her some wings made from maple tree seedpods, aka "helicopters".
I can't think of a name for this piece; if you have any suggestions, please leave me a comment!
Oh, and to my wonderful, sweet, Star Wars-obsessed son:
Happy 7th Birthday, Alexander!
