Joan's Gardens Vintage Tag Challenge


Just a quick little post before I head to work. I must have gotten side tracked and never checked Joan's Gardens challenge this week! Eek! She has asked us to create a tag using chipboard, cork, or whatever we have about.

I used a combo of items for this. The base is a Manila tag covered in Cosmo Cricket paper that has been distressed with TH Old Paper Distress ink. The sentiment and chipboard edge are also from them. I created this grungy flower from some K&Co paper and fastened it with a brass brad. I tucked a wee bit of organza ribbon under it for another texture, and finished everything off with an antique button.

I hope you like it , and now it is time for me to exit, stage left.
