Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens JGT0503


Just a quick post to get my tag entered in this weeks tag challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  There is always such a great bunch of talented artists entering their creations! 

I used one of my newer stamp sets from Gina K. Designs, called Stenciled Spring. They are great solid stamps and I got to playing with Marvy brush markers to add colors.  The papers are K&Co..  My ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  A Prima with button and purple pearls are my accents. 

I learned with my last tag, I entered, that if you add a bamboo skewer to the back, and cover with a layer of matching paper, you can make a great plant poke for a gift.  Maybe something for Mother's Day?

Thanks for taking a look see!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Very pretty, love the colors you used and the stamp. Great idea for the skewer and using it to put in a potted plant as a gift, TFS.

Mary Anne,
Wonderful tag! That is one of my favorite images from the set. I hope all is well with you. I've been working some pretty wired hours, early morning then back in the afternoon and this up and down rain has played havoc with my sinus.
